In order to resolve the tension between continuously growing mobile users' demands on content access and the scarcity of the bandwidth capacity over backhaul links, we propose in this paper a fully distributed ICN-based caching scheme for content objects in Radio Access Network (RAN) at eNodeBs. Such caching scheme operates in a cooperative way within neighbourhoods, aiming to reduce cache redundancy so as to improve the diversity of content distribution. The caching decision logic at individual eNodeBs allows for adaptive caching, by taking into account dynamic context information, such as content popularity and availability. The efficiency of the proposed distributed caching scheme is evaluated via extensive simulations, which show great performance gains, in terms of a substantial reduction of backhaul content traffic as well as great improvement on the diversity of content distribution, etc.
