We provide a design of a control and management plane for data networks using the abstraction of 4D architecture, utilizing and extending 4D's concept of a logically centralized Decision plane that is responsible for managing network-wide resources. In this paper, a scalable protocol and a dynamically adaptable algorithm for assigning Data plane devices to(More)
—We investigate the design of a clean-slate control and management plane for data networks using the abstraction of 4D architecture, utilizing and extending 4D's concept of logically centralized Decision plane that is responsible for managing network-wide resources.

We study link scheduling in networks with small router buffers, with the goal of minimizing the guaranteed packet loss rate bound for each ingress–egress traffic aggregate (connection). Given a link scheduling algorithm (a service discipline and a packet drop policy), the guaranteed loss rate for a connection is the loss rate under worst-case routing and(More)
