Abstract

As the rising applications of Named Data Networking (NDN) continue to increase the demand on network bandwidth, developing effective congestion mechanisms has become one of the high-priority research tasks for NDN architecture. This paper explores rate control protocol (RCP), a unique hop-by-hop feature in NDN routing, and one-To-one relationship between interest requests and data packets to develop a novel congestion control mechanism for NDN. Specifically, we have designed and implemented a rate-based, explicit and hop-by-hop congestion control algorithm, NDN Hop-by-Hop RCP, namely NHBH-RCP, to achieve high link utilization and increase overall network throughput. In addition, we compare the naive congestion control algorithm in NDN with NHBH-RCP via various experiments and find that our proposed algorithm significantly enhances the performance of data transfer in NDN and reduces flow-completion time between consumers and producers.
