Due to CCN has the advantages of content-centric, unstructured, chunk-level and multipath, the Content Centric Mobile Ad-hoc Network (CCMANET) applies the advantages of Content Centric Network (CCN) to Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET). The method solves the problems of low efficiency and unstable in transmission, which caused by nodes movement, dynamical changes of topology, limited node capacity, instability of wireless channel. This paper provides an overview of the existing technologies in CCMANET. Firstly, the paper introduces the basic principle and the new features of CCMANET. Secondly, the key techniques, such as caching, routing, mobility management and security are visited. From this, some important remaining challenges are raised.
