Abstract

Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs) have been realized as a potential solution for offshore monitoring, undersea military applications, smart fishing, and so on. However, the current communication systems for underwater nodes are facing non-trivial challenges due to the constrained networking conditions. For instance, the sink addresses the node(s) by using their ID(s) to pull the sensed information. However, it is not obvious that the addressed nodes in request message actually are able to provide the requested data. Meanwhile, the Named Data Networking (NDN), aka Content-Centric Networking (CCN), is recently emerged as a potential future Internet architecture. NDN uses the Data Names to pull the required information rather than the IP addresses. In this paper, we check the feasibility of applying NDN into UWSN and name it as UNDN. In addition, we propose the very first naming scheme for UNDN and present the preliminary evaluations.
