Yuki Koizumi skipped the fourth grades of the Undergraduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University to enter the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University, in 2004. He received his Master of Information Science and Ph.D. of Information Science degrees from Osaka University, Japan, in 2006 and 2009, respectively. Since 2009, he has been an assistant professor at the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University, Japan.
A software router, which is built on a hardware platform based on a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer, becomes feasible because of recent advances in multi-core CPUs and fast networking technologies for COTS computers. It is a promising platform for both IP and future ICN forwarding engines since it is low-cost, energy-efficient, and flexible. The goal of this research is to present what an ideal ICN forwarding engine on a COTS computer is supposed to be.

Information Centric Networking (ICN) has been gotten much attention due to its built-in functionalities such as caching and mobility-support. One of important research challenges is to reduce power consumed by ICN networks because ICN's packet forwarding and packet-level caching are energy-hungry. As the first step of achieving power-efficient ICN networks, we develop a power consumption model of a multicore software ICN router while taking into account power consumed by energy-hungry computation. The main contributions of this research are three-fold: First, the model is one of the first realistic models which consider ICN packet forwarding and packet-level caching. Second, the model is represented as concise equations with just a few parameters. Third, we apply the model to estimate power consumed by simple networks in order to answer a question which would not be answered without this model.

In this research, we propose an ICN-based message delivery protocol over a cellular network in disasters. Collaborative communication among cellular devices is integrated into the protocol so that power consumed by battery-operated BSs (Base Stations) is reduced when a breakout occurs. A key idea is to reduce consumed radio resources by making cellular devices of which radio propagation quality is better forward messages of neighboring devices. The radio resource reduction contributes to reducing power consumed by a battery-operated BS.

How the mobile Internet accommodates a huge number of IoT devices is an important research challenge since their number grows to several billions. An important observation about IoT device communications is that IoT devices have different characteristics in mobility from traditional mobile devices such as cellular phones. Strict mobility management scheme and session mobility provided by handover functions are not required for the IoT device mobility management. In this research, we focus on IoT communication features, and propose a routing-based mobility architecture for them. Our routing architecture uses the Bloom Filter as a data structure to store routing information. We clarify the effectiveness of our routing architecture in IoT environments.
