DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2018

Recent development in mobile technology makes data traffic intensifies, due to the vast devices connectivity. Also, increases the needs for efficient and scalable distribution of data and services over the Internet. Therefore, the Information Centric Networking paradigm was proposed, with different approaches as a clean-slate redesign of current host-centric Internet architecture. It evolved to access data independent from its location, by replacing IP addresses with content named. This paper reviews the most popular Information Centric Networking approaches, review and summarizes some of its features, such as naming, routing, caching and mobility in tabular form. In addition, the modes of operations based on named resolution services and named based routing for the approaches with some network exemplary diagrams were presented. Also, mobility supports for consumer, and mobility challenges from current to feature Internet were discussed for future research.
