Information-Centric Networking (ICN) was born in an era that more and more users are shifting their interests to the content itself rather than the location where contents are stored. This paradigm shift in the usage patterns of the Internet, along with the urgent needs for content naming, pervasive caching, better security, and mobility support, has prompted researchers to consider a radical change to the Internet architecture. However, ICN is still in its infancy and development stage, and many issues still exist and need to be addressed. The common ICN architecture is lacking the host-centric communication ability and difficult to provide seamless mobility in current solutions. To solve this problem, our team had proposed the Named-Node Networking (3N) concept, which not only naming the content but also naming the node and it proved to have better performance of providing seamless mobility in the simulation. However, the previous contributions were limited in the 3N namespace for seamless mobility support in both producer and consumer. In this paper, we have proposed a 3N system which includes 3N naming, data delivery, mobility support, and data security. Moreover, we have created a 3N-based real-Time video streaming system to evaluate data delivery performance and mobility handoff performance. The evaluation result proofs that our system performs better than TCP video streaming in a multi-client situation and a WiFi-based handoff was demonstrated.
