Network Virtualization is claimed to be a key component of the Future Internet, providing the dynamic support of different networks with different paradigms and mechanisms in the same physical infrastructure. A major challenge in the dynamic provision of virtual networks is the efficient embedding of virtual resources into physical ones. Since this problem(More)
Conventional routing management approaches, which are based on given and often ”worst case” traffic matrices, are not sufficient anymore to deal with the increasing growth of the number of endpoints and diverse applications in IP networks. Traffic variations are becoming a more and more important issue, especially when making long-term network planning(More)
In this article we present a new class of traffic shapers that make up the shaping decision whether to delay or pass a packet by comparing a measured distribution specifying the arrival stream to a given reference distribution. Rather than simply comparing average values this shaper emits data streams with property ’better than reference distribution’ by(More)
In this paper, we present a new approach to solve the logical topology reconfiguration problem for IP over WDM networks under dynamic traffic. Based on the measurement of lightpaths' load, a change in the logical topology is made if some lightpath is highly loaded or under utilized. The change can be adding/deleting several lightpaths or just rerouting(More)
Network Virtualization is acclaimed to be a key component for the Future Internet by enabling the coexistence of heterogeneous (virtual) networks on the same physical infrastructure, providing the dynamic creation and support of different networks with different paradigms and mechanisms in the same physical network. A major challenge in the dynamic(More)
