The Next Generation Networks (NGN) platform provides a flexible routing solution (FLIPS) based on an Information Centric Networking (ICN) approach. The platform is a hybrid of pure ICN and IP, to leverage the best of both: re-introducing multicast, particularly for HTTP unicast scenarios, as a way to drive down bandwidth costs. It also provides support for flexible service surrogacy as an evolution from pure content replication in today’s Internet. The underlying backward compatible architecture introduces new methodologies supported by an SDN/NFV enabled network fabric designed to meet the challenging KPIs of 5G.
