Abstract: Information-centric networking (ICN) has been touted as a revolutionary solution for the future of the Internet, which will be dominated by video traffic. This work investigates the challenge of distributing video content of adaptive bitrate (ABR) over ICN. In particular, we use the in-network caching capability of ICN routers to serve users; in addition, with the help of named function, we enable ICN routers to transcode videos to lower-bitrate versions to improve the cache hit ratio. Mathematically, we formulate this design challenge into a constrained optimization problem, which aims to maximize the cache hit ratio for service providers and minimize the service delay for endusers. We design a two-step iterative algorithm to find the optimum. First, given a content management scheme, we minimize the service delay via optimally configuring the routing scheme. Second, we maximize the cache hits for a given routing policy. Finally, we rigorously prove its convergence. Through extensive simulations, we verify the convergence and the performance gains over other algorithms. We also find that more resources should be allocated to ICN routers with a heavier request rate, and the routing scheme favors the shortest path to schedule more traffic.
