The Internet is straining to meet demands that its design never anticipated, such as supporting billions of mobile devices and transporting huge amounts of multimedia content. The publish-subscribe Internet (PSI) architecture, a clean slate information-centric networking approach to the future Internet, was designed to satisfy the current and emerging user demands for pervasive content delivery, which the Internet can no longer handle. This article provides an overview of the PSI architecture, explaining its operation from bootstrapping to information delivery, focusing on its support for network layer caching and seamless mobility, which make PSI an excellent platform for ubiquitous information delivery.
