The Internet, the de facto platform for large-scale content distribution, suffers from two issues that limit its manageability, efficiency and evolution: (1) The IP-based Internet is host-centric and agnostic to the content being delivered and (2) the tight coupling of the control and data planes restrict its manageability, and subsequently the possibility to create dynamic alternative paths for efficient content delivery. Here we present the CURLING system that leverages the emerging Information- Centric Networking paradigm for enabling cost-efficient Internetscale content delivery by exploiting multicasting and in-network caching. Following the software-defined networking concept that decouples the control and data planes, CURLING adopts an inter-domain hop-by-hop content resolution mechanism that allows network operators to dynamically enforce/change their network policies in locating content sources and optimizing content delivery paths. Content publishers and consumers may also control content access according to their preferences. Based on both analytical modelling and simulations using real domainlevel Internet subtopologies, we demonstrate how CURLING supports efficient Internet-scale content delivery without the necessity for radical changes to the current Internet.
