In this paper, we are concerned about content-based networking (CBN) at extreme scales, characterized by a large number of widely spread consumers, heterogeneous consumer requirements, huge volume of publications, and the scarcity of end-to-end bandwidth. We extend CBN with a generic service model that allows consumers to express their interests in future publications including cached content, but also to quantify the maximum amount of information they are willing to consume. We take advantage of this knowledge to pace the dissemination process and therefore, enhance the service efficiency. Early evaluation results show gains of up to 80% compared to a baseline CBN model.
