Our tests showed  very promising results for public cloud Pub/Sub (DHT based). We got about 120ms performance out of these systems.
Given that these systems are designed to mover large chunk of data, it is very reasonable to assume that the performance for these DHT based mapping systems can be further improved for 5G.

Subject: [DMM] Mapping System scalability

Hi all,

In the DMM call this week, some people asked about the scalability of the Mapping System. The LISP community has delivered different solutions to address that challenge over the years. Here are some pointers to different Mapping System implementations, I'm sure that the folks at the LISP WG list can provide even more references.

LISP Delegated Database Tree (LISP DDT) [1] follows a DNS-like structure and it's designed to be deployed at Internet scale. For an academic work on a DNS-based Mapping System take a look at [2].

Designs leveraging DHTs have also been considered to enable high scalabilty, see for instance [3][4]. For a survey on different Mapping System options see [5] (I wasn't able to find an open version of this article unfortunately).

For those interested in current research efforts, recent works include decentralized designs [6] or even Blockchain-based approaches [7].

Hope this helps,
