The Internet is a great hit in human history. However, it has evolved greatly from its original incarnation. Content distribution is playing a central role in today's Internet, which makes it difficult for the conventional host-to-host communication to meet the ever-increasing demands. In this paper, we present a novel 'service and information oriented network architecture' (SIONA). The key aspect of SIONA is the name-based two-dimensional routing paradigm that provides scalable routing, caching and content delivery. We argue that SIONA solves the problems of mobile Internet by naturally supporting mobility, and provides network layer P2P for massive data distribution. Evaluation is conducted to investigate its caching and mobility performance.
