In this thesis, we present MobileNDN, a scalable design for producer mobility support in the Named Data Network (NDN) architecture. While the initial design of NDN provided support for consumer mobility automatically via its stateful forwarding plane, a solution for producer mobility was left unspecified. The mobility support scheme we propose decouples the tasks of 1) detecting whether data may exist on a mobile producer, and of 2) forwarding interest packets towards the mobile producer. First, we use NDNS to detect zones that may be served by mobile producers. Second, based on insights from MobilityFirst, we introduce a scalable global mapping service to locate mobile producers. The combination of these two components yields a mobility solution that allows NDN's forwarding to operate and scale in the face of mobile consumers and producers.
