This thesis seeks to test and evaluate the effects of in-network storage in novel proposed Internet architectures in terms of their performance. In a world where more and more people are mobile and connected to the Internet, we look at how the added variable of user mobility can affect how these architectures perform under different loads. Evaluating the effects of in-network storage and caching in these novel architectures will provide another facet to understanding how viable of an alternative they would be to the current TCP/IP paradigm of today's Internet. In Named Data Networking, where the storage is used to directly cache content, we see its use of storage impact the locality of where things are, while in MobilityFirst, where storage is used to cache chunks to provide robust delivery, we look at how its different layers work together in a mobility event.
