Future communication networks and wireless networks in particular will need to support extreme communication requirements, from increasing data rates to reduced latency, for a growing number of connected users and devices. Owing to the popularity of smart phones and tablets, a significant portion of the exponentially growing mobile data traffic today is due to video content delivery, and more strikingly, most of this traffic stems from a relatively small number of highly popular viral content. To exploit this particular characteristic, caching popular video contents at the network edge has emerged as a promising technique that can reduce both the backhaul traffic for network operators, and the latency for wireless users.
Our goal in this workshop is to bring together experts working on different aspects of this popular and exciting research area, spanning several layers of the communication network architecture and protocols, to inspire and initiate discussions on how content caching and distribution, and distributed storage can be best designed and exploited in future communication networks.
Collaborating with CommNet2 on this event are members of the Centre for Information and Communications Research (iCore), based at Imperial College London.
