Due to its simplicity, transparency and performance, Flow Visor takes it all in today's virtualization tools for OpenFlow networks. We argue that this effectiveness comes at the price of intolerance towards diverse OpenFlow versions used simultaneously and also limited switch functionality. What is more Flow Visor based management frameworks cannot run and(More)
Mininet is a great prototyping tool which combines existing SDN-related software components (e.g., Open vSwitch, OpenFlow controllers, network namespaces, cgroups) into a framework, which can automatically set up and configure customized OpenFlow testbeds scaling up to hundreds of nodes. Standing on the shoulders of Mininet, we implement a similar(More)
The short-term dynamics of competing high speed TCP flows could have surprising impacts on their long-term fairness. As a result, this could have a severe impact on the co-existence and, finally, the deployment feasibility of different seemingly promising proposals for the next generation networks. However, to our best knowledge, no root-cause analysis of(More)
End-to-end service delivery often includes transparently inserted Network Functions (NFs) in the path. Flexible service chaining will require dynamic instantiation of both NFs and traffic forwarding overlays. Virtualization techniques in compute and networking, like cloud and Software Defined Networking (SDN), promise such flexibility for service providers.(More)
Many networking visioners agree that 5G will be much more than the incremental improvement, in terms of data rate, of 4G. Besides the mobile networks, 5G will fundamentally influence the core infrastructure as well. In our vision the realization of the challenging promises of 5G (e.g. extremely fast, low-overhead, low-delay access of mostly cloudified(More)
The rise of cloud services poses considerable challenges on the control of both cloud and carrier network infrastructures. While traditional telecom network services rely on rather static processes (often involving manual steps), the wide adoption of mobile devices including tablets, smartphones and wearables introduce previously unseen dynamics in the(More)
OpenFlow is the most promising architecture for future Software Defined Networks (SDNs). However, from the aspects of large-scale or carrier-grade networks, it still lacks some key components. For example, QoS (Quality of Service) provisioning is an indispensable part of such production networks. During the evolution of the OpenFlow standard, some QoS(More)
In this demo, we show a novel method to multi-layer service orchestration in a multi-domain network. This method is a basic implementation of the three layered concept with multi-layer orchestration designed by the UNIFY project. A global orchestrator is capable of instantiating service elements, i.e., virtual network functions (VNFs), in separate domains.(More)
The limited capabilities of the switches renders the implementation of unorthodox routing and forwarding mechanisms as a hard task in OpenFlow. Our high level goal is therefore to inspect the possibilities of slightly smartening up the OpenFlow switches. As a first step in this direction we demonstrate (with Bloom filters, greedy routing and network coding)(More)
