Home arrow Engineering arrow Modeling and Optimization for Mobile Social Networks



In this chapter, a novel framework to deliver content over content centric MSNs in 5G has been presented. We have shown the system structure consisting of users, CCN nodes, small cells, and macro cells. The process of mobile content delivery based on the interest of content and users in communities has been discussed. As caching in the content store of a CCN node plays an important role in the performance of content delivery, we also propose a caching proposed scheme to determine which replicas should be stored in the content store. Simulation results have shown the efficiency of our proposed model.
