    The underlying networks (of the Internet) have been reworked to make way for new technologies, some serious inefficiencies and security problems have arisen. As a result, over the past years, fundamentally new network designs have taken shape and are being tested. In ITU Recommendation Y.3001 [1], four objectives are identified in line with the requirements for Future Network; one of them is data awareness. In ITU Recommandation Y.3033 [2], the 'Mobility' is addressed as one of the key problem spaces of data aware networking (DAN). This paper proposes Named-Node-Networking (3N), a novel architecture for DAN. We design a simulator (nnnSIM) [3] for evaluating our proposed 3N architecture which is the second major contribution of this paper. The nnnSIM simulator is written in C++ under the ns-3 framework [4] and has been made available as open-source software for the scientific community. Considering the importance of a unique DAN architecture, we propose a study for standardization work in the ITU as an initiative which can lead to its rapid adaptation.
