Software Defined Networking Concepts

Software Defined Mobile Networks (SDMN): Beyond LTE Network Architecture, None

Software defined networking (SDN) is an idea that promises to simplify and unify the way that networks are designed and managed. SDN employs an abstraction that separates the control from the data plane and introduces the notion of a logically centralized controller. These concepts provide benefits like increased flexibility in network management, unification of heterogeneous technologies, and lowered operating expenses, ...

  • Software Defined Networking Concepts

    Software defined networking (SDN) is an idea that promises to simplify and unify the way that networks are designed and managed. SDN employs an abstraction that separates the control from the data plane and introduces the notion of a logically centralized controller. These concepts provide benefits like increased flexibility in network management, unification of heterogeneous technologies, and lowered operating expenses, which open many opportunities to work on new innovative networking solutions. This chapter is meant to act as a primer on SDN for readers who are new to the SDN paradigm as well as those who are already familiar with its concepts but could benefit from an inspection of SDN's potential, current research challenges, and associated technological trends. The chapter presents the history and the evolution of SDN from early programmable networks followed by a detailed discussion of its building blocks (including controllers, switches, and interfaces) and some examples of SDN application domains. We also provide a short summary of some of the prominent SDN‐related activities in industry and standardization bodies and close with a brief outlook for SDN.

  • A Network Model for Internet of vehicles based on SDN and Cloud Computing

    Internet of vehicles (IoV) is the evolution of conventional vehicle network (VANET), a recent domain attracting a large number of companies and researchers. It is an integration of three networks: an inter-vehicle network, an intra-vehicle network, and vehicular mobile Internet, in which the vehicle is considered as a smart object equipped with powerful multi-sensors platform, connectivity and communication technologies, enabling it to communicate with the world. The cooperative communication between vehicles and other devices causes diverse challenges in terms of: storage and computing capability, energy of vehicle and network's control and management. Security is very important aspect in IoV and it is required to protect connected cars from cybercrime and accidents. In this article, we propose a network model for IoV based on software Defined Network and Cloud Computing.

  • Implementation of SDN Stateful Firewall on Data Plane using Open vSwitch

    A Software Defined Networking (SDN) has been deployed in the current network system. Together with Network Virtualization (NVF), it makes the network become more flexible. The firewall can be implemented in SDN. However, with the limitation of earlier version of OpenFlow protocol used in SDN, the stateful firewall could not be implemented with the SDN standard. The development of OpenFlow enables some features that can be used for implementing the stateful firewall. In this work, we implement the stateful firewall in the SDN switch on the data plane. The Open vSwitch is used. We also evaluate the performance of the SDN stateful firewall. The results show that our SDN stateful firewall can work correctly with small overhead increased in SDN switches.

  • Proactive failure recovery in OpenFlow based Software Defined Networks

    Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a network architecture that decouples the control and data planes. SDN enables network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted from the network services. The foundation for open standards based software defined networking is the OpenFlow protocol. The OpenFlow architecture which is originally designed for Local Area Networks (LANs), doesn't include effective mechanisms for fast resiliency. But metro, carrier grade Ethernet networks and industrial area networks have to guarantee fast resiliency upon network failure. This paper experiments the link protection scheme that aims to enhance the OpenFlow architecture by adding fast recovery mechanisms in the switch and the controller. This is achieved by enabling the controller to add backup paths proactively along with the working paths and enabling the switches to perform the recovery actions locally. As this avoids controller intervention during recovery, the recovery time solely depends upon the failure detection time of the switch. As this will be less compared to the switch-controller round trip time, this gives better results. The performance of the system is evaluated by finding the packet loss and switch over time and comparing it with the current OpenFlow implementations. The system performs reasonably better than the existing systems in terms of switch over time. However the number of backup path entries increase relatively.

  • A roadmap for SDN-based network management: Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan case

    Due to technological blast in hardware, software and communications systems, computing devices in multi forms (laptops, cell phones, tablets...) and vendors are spreading all over the globe connecting billions of users, and communicating massive amount of data daily, through the underlining networking infrastructures. University campus is no exception. Typical users of an educational campus network are students, faculty members, and the administrative staff. The increase number of mobile users, BYOD, social media applications, real-time video and audio communications, and mobile based services are some of the major challenges that put huge pressure and stress on the university campus network operators to manage and satisfy their customers. In this paper a software defined network (SDN) based design is proposed for managing Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan (ZUJ) network to overcome the emerging networking challenges. Current ZUJ network service is focusing on provisioning best effort connectivity. Our approach is this paper is to explore the primary challenges faced by the ZUJ network administrators, examine the limitations of the current solutions, and then propose an SDN design that will overcome the limitations of the current deployed network.

  • Meeting the challenges of data analysis on the wire

    The project of Analysis on the Wire (AoW) at Brookhaven National Laboratory has the goal of executing generic computations in the network fabric, "on the wire," to sup-port early decision making. We are research-ing, developing, and evaluating hardware and software mechanisms and middleware to be used for data analysis on the wire. We further pursue to address several complex challenges encountered in such a computing environ-ment, such as handling raw packet data, deal-ing with computations of a streaming nature, and eliminating performance-killing bottle-necks and delays by taking advantage of any means of acceleration.

  • Investigation of Multipath Routing Algorithms in Software Defined Networking

    Partial disjoint multipath routing has been largely deployed in networks such as wireless sensor networks, outperforming single path routing in load balance and fault tolerance, etc. However, disjoint multipath routing has not been widely deployed in networks, because the difficulty of designing an accordingly distributed algorithm. Software defined networking (SDN) is based on the abstract of the network structure, which separates the data plane and control plane, decouples the path dependence, and makes the network management greatly simplified. Due to its architecture, disjoint multipath routing is likely to be employed in SDN, and attracts considerable research interest in the community. This paper considers SDN as the research background, designs and implements disjoint multipath routing, and compares to the traditional single shortest path routing. This paper simulates the routing progress in the network, using complete graph, grid and X grid graph as network model. The experimental results show that disjoint multipath routing compares favorably to the traditional single path routing method in load balance, by comparing covariance values difference of the traffic. It also shows that the advantage of disjoint multipath routing partially comes from the load limit of a link in networks.

  • Investigation of optical impacts on virtualization using SDN-enabled transceiver and optical monitoring

    We propose a scheme to introduce real-time optical layer monitoring into optical network virtualization enabled by software defined networking. The optical layer factors that impact the virtualization are characterised and investigated using this scheme experimentally.
