Project CCNx®

The vision of Project CCNx® is to develop, promote, and evaluate a new approach to communication architecture we call content-centric networking.  We seek to carry out this mission by creating and publishing open protocol specifications and a software reference implementation of those protocols. We provide support for a community of people interested in experimentation, research, and commercialization of this technology.
