  • Communications, caching, and computing for content-centric mobile
           networks: part 1 [guest editorial]
    • Pages: 14 - 15
      Abstract: The driving forces behind the exponential growth in mobile cellular network traffic have fundamentally shifted from the steady increase in demand for conventional "connection-centric" communications, such as phone calls and text messages, to the explosion of "content- centric" communications, such as video streaming and content sharing. The Cisco Visual Networking Index projects that video traffic will amount to 72 percent of global mobile data traffic by 2019. The mobile cellular network architectures of today are, however, still designed with a connection-centric communication mindset. Moreover, the myriad technological advances proposed for beyond fourth generation (4G) and 5G mobile networks still mostly focus on capacity increase, which is fundamentally constrained by the limited radio spectrum resources as well as the diminishing investment efficiency for operators, and therefore will always lag behind the growth rate of mobile traffic. It can be argued that the logjam in cellular networks cannot be addressed by improving connection capability alone, but instead must be tackled by fundamentally addressing the underlying ineffectiveness of the current communication architecture for massive content delivery.

  • Wireless caching: technical misconceptions and business barriers
    • Pages: 16 - 22
      Abstract: Caching is a hot research topic and poised to develop into a key technology for the upcoming 5G wireless networks. However, the successful implementation of caching techniques crucially depends on joint research developments in different scientific domains such as networking, information theory, machine learning, and wireless communications. Moreover, there are business barriers related to the complex interactions between the involved stakeholders: users, cellular operators, and Internet content providers. In this article we discuss several technical misconceptions with the aim of uncovering enabling research directions for caching in wireless systems.

  • Coding for caching: fundamental limits and practical challenges
    • Pages: 23 - 29
      Abstract: Caching is an essential technique to improve throughput and latency in a vast variety of applications. The core idea is to duplicate content in memories distributed across the network, which can then be exploited to deliver requested content with less congestion and delay. The traditional role of cache memories is to deliver the maximal amount of requested content locally rather than from a remote server. While this approach is optimal for single-cache systems, it has recently been shown to be significantly suboptimal for systems with multiple caches (i.e., cache networks). Instead, cache memories should be used to enable a coded multicasting gain. In this article, we survey these recent developments. We discuss both the fundamental performance limits of cache networks and the practical challenges that need to be overcome in real-life scenarios.

  • PHY-caching in 5G wireless networks: design and analysis
    • Pages: 30 - 36
      Abstract: In this article, we propose a PHY-caching scheme for 5G wireless networks to achieve spectral efficiency gain over conventional caching schemes, which do not induce physical layer cooperation. By properly caching some popular contents at the BSs, the proposed PHY-caching can opportunistically transform the topology of the RAN from an unfavorable topology (e.g., relay or interference topology) into a more favorable MIMO broadcast topology and enjoy spectral efficiency gain. Specifically, we first introduce a generic cache model and cache-assisted PHY transmission, and show that PHY-caching can significantly enhance the spectral efficiency of the wireless network by inducing dynamic side information at the BSs. Then we discuss the design challenges and solutions of PHY-caching. We introduce maximum-distance-separable-coded caching and online cache content placement design as a potential solution. As a case study, we analyze the performance trade-off between PHY-caching at the BS and CN-caching at the gateway under capacity-limited CN-fronthaul. We show that even though PHY-caching covers fewer users than CN-caching and results in a lower cache hit rate, it is still efficient to do PHY-caching at the BS.

  • Game theoretic approaches for wireless proactive caching
    • Pages: 37 - 43
      Abstract: Recently proposed wireless proactive caching has opened up a promising avenue for reducing the redundant traffic load of the future wireless network. In addition to infrastructure updating, caching schemes for different wireless caching scenarios are also essential problems of concern. Along with the benefits brought by proactive caching, the cost of proactive caching should also be taken into account, since caching schemes can be influenced by different interest relevant parties in wireless networks. In this article, we discuss several typical caching scenarios and apply corresponding game theoretical models to illustrate how the selfishness of different parties may influence the overall wireless proactive caching. Efficient caching strategies can be designed by carefully considering the relations and interactions among these parties by using game theory. We also outline possible future research directions in this emerging area.

  • Harnessing cloud and edge synergies: toward an information theory of fog
           radio access networks
    • Pages: 44 - 50
      Abstract: Edge caching and the centralization of baseband processing by means of the C-RAN architecture are among the most promising and transformative trends in the evolution of wireless networks. A key advantage of C-RAN is the possibility to perform cooperative transmission across multiple edge nodes, such as small cell base stations, thanks to centralized cloud processing. Cloud processing, however, comes at the cost of the potentially large delay entailed by fronthaul transmission between edge and cloud. In contrast, edge caching enables the low-latency transmission of popular multimedia content, but at the cost of constraining the operation of the edge nodes to decentralized transmission strategies with limited interference management capabilities. In order to accommodate the broad range of quality of service requirements of mobile broadband communication, in terms of spectral efficiency and latency, that are envisioned to be within the scope of 5G systems and beyond, this article considers a hybrid architecture, referred to as fog RAN (F-RAN), that harnesses the benefits of, and the synergies between, edge caching and C-RAN. In an F-RAN, edge nodes may be endowed with caching capabilities, while at the same time being controllable from a central cloud processor as in a C-RAN. In this article, an information-theoretic framework is presented that aims to characterize the main trade-offs between performance of an F-RAN, in terms of worst case delivery latency, and its resources: caching and fronthaul capacities.

  • The role of cloud computing in content-centric mobile networking
    • Pages: 52 - 59
      Abstract: Due to the ever growing popularity of smart handheld devices, the demand for multimedia services has had an upsurge in mobile networks over the past several years, and traditional mobile networking is turning into a content-centric mobile networking (CCMN). To maintain high quality of service for multimedia services, especially video services, caching is regarded as one of the most effective techniques. In this article, we first examine the limitations of caching techniques in conventional CCMN, including the core network and RAN. Then, by leveraging cloud computing into both core network and RAN caching, a cloud CCMN architecture is discussed, which overcomes the limitations of conventional CCMN architecture. Specifically, we elaborate on a cloud content delivery network in the core network and cloud RAN with caching as a service on the RAN side. Furthermore, we review the main problems that have been studied under cloud CCMN architecture. Recent results show that cloud CCMN is a promising architecture to serve the foreseen multimedia traffic. Lastly, we conclude this article by presenting some open challenges in cloud CCMN.

  • Exploring synergy between communications, caching, and computing in
           5G-grade deployments
    • Pages: 60 - 69
      Abstract: Decisive progress in 5G mobile technology, fueled by a rapid proliferation of computation- hungry and delay-sensitive services, puts economic pressure on the research community to rethink the fundamentals of underlying networking architectures. Along these lines, the first half of this article offers a first-hand tutorial on the most recent advances in content-centric networking, emerging user applications, as well as enabling system architectures. We establish that while significant progress has been made along the individual vectors of communications, caching, and computing, together with some promising steps in proposing hybrid functionalities, the ultimate synergy behind a fully integrated solution is not nearly well understood. Against this background, the second half of this work carefully brings into perspective additional important factors, such as user mobility patterns, aggressive application requirements, and associated operator deployment capabilities, to conduct comprehensive system-level analysis. Furthermore, supported by a full-fledged practical trial on a live cellular network, our systematic findings reveal the most dominant factors in converged 5G-grade communications, caching, and computing layouts, as well as indicate the natural optimization points for system operators to leverage the maximum available benefits.

  • Enhancement for content delivery with proximity communications in caching
           enabled wireless networks: architecture and challenges
    • Pages: 70 - 76
      Abstract: To cater for the exploding growth of video traffic, small cell base stations (SBSs) and deviceto- device-enabled caching and delivery have been regarded as promising techniques for future wireless networks. In this article, we design a proximity communications enhanced multilayer caching and delivery architecture. Then merits possessed by the proposed architecture are highlighted, and challenges and open issues are comprehensively presented. Specifically, we shed light on the trade-offs between key performance indicators (e.g., hit ratio, latency, and coverage) and operation costs (e.g., device storage space, wireless bandwidth, and device battery life), and then clarify fundamental coupling between content caching and delivery. To further verify the effectiveness of the cooperation among SBSs and user equipments, we propose a distributed content caching and delivery strategy, jointly considering popularity distribution, diverse storage capability, and user mobility. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed strategy can significantly lower the content retrieval latency and reduce the traffic flowing to core networks. Furthermore, design details of the experimental testbed are presented, and the validity of our developed strategy is verified.

  • Mobility-aware caching for content-centric wireless networks: modeling and
    • Pages: 77 - 83
      Abstract: As mobile services are shifting from connection- centric communications to content-centric communications, content-centric wireless networking emerges as a promising paradigm to evolve the current network architecture. Caching popular content at the wireless edge, including base stations and user terminals, provides an effective approach to alleviate the heavy burden on backhaul links, as well as lower delays and deployment costs. In contrast to wired networks, a unique characteristic of content-centric wireless networks (CCWNs) is the mobility of mobile users. While it has rarely been considered by existing works on caching design, user mobility contains various helpful side information that can be exploited to improve caching efficiency at both BSs and user terminals. In this article, we present a general framework for mobility-aware caching in CCWNs. Key properties of user mobility patterns that are useful for content caching are first identified, and then different design methodologies for mobility-aware caching are proposed. Moreover, two design examples are provided to illustrate the proposed framework in detail, and interesting future research directions are identified.

  • Socially aware integrated centralized infrastructure and opportunistic
           networking: a powerful content dissemination catalyst
    • Pages: 84 - 91
      Abstract: The classic centralized infrastructure (CI) exhibits low efficiency in disseminating the content of common interest across its requesters. In order to overcome the limitations of CI-based content dissemination, smart mobile devices are capable of activating direct opportunistic communications among mobile users, which returns in integrated cellular and opportunistic networks. During the content dissemination process, the social characteristics of multiple users, including their common interest in the content, their mobility patterns, their social ties, and their altruistic forwarding behaviors, should be carefully considered in order to design an efficient content dissemination scheme. We demonstrate that the integrated network-based content dissemination scheme outperforms its CI-based counterpart in terms of both content delivery ratio and its various energy and delay metrics. Furthermore, the opportunistic network is capable of offloading a large fraction of tele-traffic from the overloaded CI-based network.

  • NMRTS: content name-based mobile real-time streaming
    • Pages: 92 - 98
      Abstract: In light of the rapid growth in mobile video traffic and demand for stable video viewing with higher video resolution, we introduce a novel transport protocol for content-centric networking (CCN), named Content Name-Based Mobile Real-Time Streaming (NMRTS). NMRTS utilizes "symbolic interest" for mobile users to receive real-time streaming without sending bursty requests, and the regular interests (which CCN generally uses) to recover lost packets during handover. NMRTS can support seamless handover by adjusting the symbolic interest lifetime and its transmission frequency according to network conditions. Through simulations, we demonstrate that NMRTS reduces the amount of both control message transmission and redundant data traffic, and minimizes data reception delay, compared with the general CCN.

  • SAVING: socially aware vehicular information-centric networking
    • Pages: 100 - 107
      Abstract: Mobile devices today are constantly generating and consuming a tremendous amount of content on the Internet. Caching of such "massive" data is beyond the capacity of existing cellular networks in terms of both cost and bandwidth due to its connection-centric nature. The increasing demand for content poses fundamental questions like where, what, and how to cache and retrieve cached content. Leveraging the shift toward a content-centric networking paradigm, we propose to cache content close to the mobile user to avoid wasting resources and decrease access delays. Therefore, we present SAVING, a socially aware vehicular information-centric networking system for content storage and sharing over vehicles using their computing, caching, and communication (3Cs) capabilities. The encapsulated 3Cs are exploited first to identify the potential candidates, socially important, to cache in the fleet of vehicles. To achieve this, we propose a novel vehicle ranking system allowing a smart vehicle to autonomously "compute" its eligibility to address the question, where to cache. The identified vehicles then collaborate to efficiently "cache" content between them based on the content popularity and availability to decide what and how to cache. Finally, to facilitate efficient content distribution, we present a socially aware content distribution protocol allowing vehicles to "communicate" to address the question how to retrieve cached content. Implementation results for SAVING on 2986 vehicles with realistic mobility traces suggests it as an efficient and scalable computing, caching, and communication system.

  • Physical-layer security in evolving optical networks
    • Pages: 110 - 117
      Abstract: We are witnessing the evolution of optical networks toward highly heterogeneous, flexible networks with a widening area of application. As the bandwidth and reliability performance requirements of mission-critical applications tighten, and the amount of carried data grows, issues related to optical network security are becoming increasingly important. Optical networks are vulnerable to several types of attacks at the physical layer, typically aimed at disrupting the service or gaining unauthorized access to carried data. Such security breaches can induce financial losses to clients or loss of privacy, or cause network-wide service disruption, possibly leading to huge data and revenue losses. Awareness of system weaknesses and possible attack methods is a prerequisite for designing effective network security solutions. As optical networks evolve, new and changing vulnerabilities must be identified and dealt with efficiently. To this end, this article provides a comprehensive overview of potential physical-layer attack scenarios in current and future optical networks. It then proposes a general security framework, outlining possible strategies for dealing with such attacks, meant to aid in the development of efficient provisioning, monitoring, protection, and restoration schemes in the context of optical-layer security.

  • C-RoFN: multi-stratum resources optimization for cloud-based radio over
           optical fiber networks
    • Pages: 118 - 125
      Abstract: C-RAN has become a promising scenario to accommodate high-performance services, which provides ubiquitous user coverage and supports real-time cloud computing using cloud BBUs. The interaction between RRH and BBU or resource schedule among BBUs in cloud have become more frequent and complex due to the development of system-scale and user requirements. The heavy-duty interaction can promote the networking demand among RRHs and BBUs, and forces to form elastic optical fiber switching and optical networking according to the characteristics of high bandwidth, low cost, and transparent multi-rate traffic transmission. In such a network, the multiple stratum resources of radio, optical, and BBU processing unit have interwoven with each other, so the traditional architecture cannot efficiently implement the resource optimization and scheduling for the high-level QoS guarantee. In this article, we present a novel C-RoFN architecture for MSRO using software defined networking. The proposed architecture can globally optimize radio frequency, optical spectrum, and BBU processing resources effectively to maximize radio coverage and meet the QoS requirement. The functional modules of C-RoFN architecture, including the core elements of radio, optical, and BBU controllers, are described in detail. The cooperation procedures in multi-layer vertical integration and cross-stratum horizontal merging models are investigated. The overall feasibility and efficiency of the proposed architecture are also experimentally demonstrated on our SDN-enabled testbed with OpenFlow-enabled elastic optical nodes, and compared to cross-stratum optimization strategy in terms of resource occupation and path provisioning latency. Numerical results are given and analyzed based on the testbed. Some future discussions are presented in the conclusion.

  • Control plane solutions for sliceable bandwidth transceiver configuration
           in flexi-grid optical networks
    • Pages: 126 - 135
      Abstract: In EONs, the establishment of flexi-grid optical connections requires configuring both BVTs and bandwidth variable cross-connects. Such configuration has to be performed through proper control plane architecture and extensions, accounting for the client signal data rate, the required modulation format, the adopted forwarding error correction mechanisms, the number of carriers, and the required spectrum resources. Nowadays, two candidate control plane architectures with similar functions (like endpoint and node addressing, automatic topology discovery, network abstraction, path computation, and connection provisioning) can be adopted: distributed GMPLS - with optional PCE and instantiation/modification - and a control plane based on SDN with a logically centralized controller and an open protocol such as OpenFlow. In this work, by relying on the data modeling of 1 Tb/s SBVTs, we aim to design and provide feasible control plane enhancements for both GMPLS/PCE and SDN/OpenFlow architectures to automatically configure endpoint SBVTs while dynamically establishing end-to-end connections in EONs. Such extensions, successfully validated in experimental scenarios, are qualitatively compared to ease eventual EON operator selection.

  • A control plane architecture for multi-domain elastic optical networks:
           the view of the IDEALIST project
    • Pages: 136 - 143
      Abstract: A key objective of the IDEALIST project included the design and implementation of a GMPLS and PCE-based control plane for multi-vendor and multi-domain flexi-grid EON, leveraging the project advances in optical switching and transmission technology, an enabling interoperable deployment. A control plane, relying on a set of entities, interfaces, and protocols, provides the automation of the provisioning, recovery, and monitoring of end-to-end optical connections. This article provides an overview of the implemented architecture. We present the macroscopic system along with the core functional blocks, control procedures, message flows, and protocol extensions. The implemented end-toend architecture adopted active stateful hierarchical PCE, under the control and orchestration of an adaptive network manager, interacting with a parent PCE, which first coordinates the selection of domains and the end-to-end provisioning using an abstracted view of the topology, and second, delegates the actual computation and intra-domain provisioning to the corresponding children PCEs. End-to-end connectivity is obtained by either a single LSP, or by the concatenation of multiple LSP segments, which are set up independently by the underlying GMPLS control plane at each domain. The architecture and protocol extensions have been implemented by several partners, assessing interoperability in a multi-partner testbed and adoption by the relevant Internet SDO (standards development organization).

    • Pages: 144 - 152
      Abstract: FTTdp networks using can complement the rollout of FTTH, especially in regions where the deployment of fiber inside the building is difficult. This article analyzes the main cost components of FTTdp networks with and the cost differences that can be achieved in comparison to FTTH networks. The two metrics employed in the article, the cost per home passed and the cost per home connected, were applied to six different geotypes that range from dense urban to rural scenarios. The results show that the cost per home passed of an FTTdp network with the distribution point located in the street is lower than the cost of FTTH. The cost per home connected for FTTdp is lower than that of FTTH for all of the scenarios studied. The cost reduction rates achieved by FTTdp networks are higher when employing a brownfield deployment scheme than when employing a greenfield deployment scheme.

  • Low-cost hybrid ROADM architectures for scalable C/DWDM metro networks
    • Pages: 153 - 161
      Abstract: CWDM networks have proven to be a promising first-step metro and access network architecture, offering a significant cost advantage over DWDM due to the lower cost of lasers and the filters used in CWDM modules. If demand grows beyond the capacity covered by CWDM channels, DWDM network elements can be introduced to merge CWDM and DWDM traffic at the optical layer. This ensures two advantages: reduced initial investment and scalability for deploying DWDM channels in the future. This article presents various ROADM architectures, and explores the novel optical node architecture of hybrid C/DWDM networks, consisting of CWDM, hybrid C/DWDM, and junction nodes connecting two rings. Evaluation has shown that the hybrid ROADM architecture is superior to other conventional ROADM architectures in terms of scalability and the initial cost of optical nodes and networks.

  • Physical layer security issues in interference- alignment-based wireless
    • Pages: 162 - 168
      Abstract: IA is a promising solution for the interference management of future wireless networks. On the other hand, physical layer security is a critical issue of wireless communications in the presence of adversaries. Recently, these two important fields tend to be researched closely together. In this article, some of the key results are summarized, and two primary attacks at the physical layer of IA-based networks, adversarial jamming and eavesdropping, are further studied. We first propose an anti-jamming scheme by aligning the jamming signal together with interference among users cooperatively when an adversarial jammer exists. Then an AN scheme is proposed, in which the external eavesdropping is disrupted by AN without introducing any additional interference to the legitimate network. To further analyze the potential threat, a collusive eavesdropping scheme by some hostile IA users in the network is also proposed. Simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of these schemes. Finally, some future challenges are also summarized.

  • Fronthaul cell outage compensation for 5G networks
    • Pages: 169 - 175
      Abstract: 5G networks are expected to bring the gigabits per second throughput level per user to reality by 2020. This is done using a combination of new and well known technologies such as C-RAN, self-organizing networks, ultra dense networks, massive MIMO, and millimeter waves. In new RAN architectures, C-RAN has been viewed as a promising 5G architecture that centralizes baseband processing units and virtualizes them into a resource pool. The baseband units are connected to the remote radio heads via high speed fronthaul links. Failure of any 5G cell site fronthaul means the loss of hundreds of gigabits, or even terabits. In this article, we present a novel cell outage compensation approach using new SHRs added to each cell site in the 5G network. These SHRs operate only in case of fronthaul/ backhaul failure of any cell site in the network. A new software defined controller is introduced to handle the self-healing procedures. The article also introduces a high-level simulation study that is carried out to assess the proposed approach. The simulation results confirm the advantages of the proposed approach in terms of the degree of recovery from failures.
