Motivation: Today, an increasing number of end-networks
are deploying redundancy elimination (RE) solutions to im-
prove their WAN performance. The success of such deploy-
ments has motivated researchers, equipment vendors (e.g.,Cisco,
Riverbed) and ISPs to explore the potential of network-wide
RE. Recent work [1] has shown the benefits of supporting
RE as a primitive IP-layer service on network routers. In
similar vein, network equipment vendors have highlighted
the network-wide support for content caching as a key focus
area. Supporting RE at the network-level socializes the ben-
efits of RE to all end-to-end flows and also allows ISPs to
better handle bandwidth-intensive workloads.
