Presented herein are novel techniques to resolve cache capacity issues in Low-Power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) by utilizing border router edge computing. Following deployment of a network, such as an information-centric networking (ICN) network, a border router will generate a bitmap for all support services through negotiations with a cloud service (CS) and low-power devices. The border router will then cache data that satisfies specific service criteria for low-power devices that have registered for such data. The border router will further publish the service bitmap to a sleep proxy. A given low-power device can periodically examine the service bitmap via beacons to determine whether there may be any service(s) in which it is interested and, if so, respond to the border router.
