Cut-through Forwarding Of Ccnx Message Fragments With Ip Encapsulation

Abstract

One embodiment provides a system that facilitates cut-through forwarding of message fragments over a network. During operation, the system receives a packet that corresponds to a fragment of a message and contains a fragment header. The system stores in a data structure a mapping relationship between the fragment header and a hierarchically structured variable-length identifier (HSVLI), wherein the HSVLI comprises contiguous name components ordered from a most general level to a most specific level. The system makes a forwarding decision for the packet based on the fragment header prior to receiving all fragment packets associated with the message, thereby facilitating cut-through forwarding of the message fragments over a network.
