    In this study, a CCN-based content placement strategy named Coupling Parameters to Optimize Content Placement (COCP) is developed and evaluated to minimize the redundancy of contents along the downloading path. Existing in-network caching strategies have failed to used limited storage properly which leads to degrade cache hit ratio and network performance. COCP is a novel approach that utilizes the cache resources efficiently and enhances the performance of the network. We have performed extensive simulations under different constraints (cache sizes and content popularity). Conclusively, the results show that there is a decrease in latency and path stretch, a significant improvement in the cache hit ratio and the bandwidth is utilized properly over the CCN. The results obtained suggest that the proposed COCP strategy can handle the demands of future networks such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and vehicular networks.
