We present Tesseract, an experimental system that enables the direct control of a computer network that is under a single administrative domain. Tesseract's design is based on the 4D architecture, which advocates the decomposition of the network control plane into decision, dissemination, discovery, and data planes. Tesseract provides two primary abstract(More)
—Networks cannot be managed without communication among geographically distributed network devices and control agents. Unfortunately, computer networks today lack an autonomic mechanism that enables such communications, and the stopgap solutions used in practice are seriously flawed. To address the problem, this paper presents the design and implementation(More)
