Proactive content caching scheme utilizing transportation systems, especially on trains, was proposed in order to provide a robust content delivery with efficient wireless resource usage. This system requires content servers with NDN capability to be placed on every station and trains. The mechanism is to pre-cache the contents that users request to the station server before the train arrives, and the train server caches the content during its stoppage time. With this mechanism, users are able to have a continuous playback of videos while riding on trains. In this paper, we have proposed a browser-based implementation, called DASH-NDN-JS, for this proactive content caching scheme. We evaluate this scheme, and experiment with multiple users to see how it will affect the video quality each user will achieve and the bandwidth consumption between the connections. Our evaluations conclude that the increase of users lowers the video quality, but avoids congestion depending on what video content each user will want to request.
