Automated and Scalable QoS Control for Network Convergence

  title={Automated and Scalable QoS Control for Network Convergence},
  author={Wonho Kim and Puneet Sharma and Jeongkeun Lee and Sujata Banerjee and Jean Tourrilhes and Sung-Ju Lee and Praveen Yalagandula},
Network convergence is becoming increasingly important for cost reduction and management simplification. However, this convergence requires strict performance isolation while keeping fine-grained control of each service (e.g. VoIP, video conference etc.). It is difficult to guarantee the performance requirements for various serviceswith manual configuration of the Quality-of-Service (QoS) knobs on a per-device basis as is prevalent today. We propose a network QoS control framework for converged…

OFQuality: a quality of service management module for software-defined networking
An architecture of a controller module that implements the Open vSwitch Database Management Protocol (OVSDB) in order to provide QoS management with queue prioritisation on SDN, which differs from others because it features mechanisms to test and facilitate user configuration.
Quality of Service Guaranteed Resource Management Dynamically in Software Defined Network
A novel QoS-enabled management framework to create an end-to-end communication service over software defined networking (SDN) and shows that an effectively improve on QoS can be achieved for various services using this framework.
Dynamic QoS Management for a Flexible 5G/6G Network Core: A Step toward a Higher Programmability
This research has developed highly flexible, dynamic queue management software and moved it entirely to the application layer (reducing dependence on the physical network infrastructure), and emulated a testbed environment as realistically as possible to verify the proposed model capabilities.
A Survey on Autonomic Provisioning and Management of QoS in SDN Networks
This paper includes in-depth classification, taxonomy, and comparative analysis for the autonomic-based QoS provisioning in accordance with the famous influential and widely adopted the monitor-analyze-plan-execute-knowledge (MAPE-K) IBM architectural model for autonomic computing.

This paper presents the QoS functionality in SDN and uses OpenFlow protocol, OpenvSwitch and QoS application built on top Ryu controller and shows the use of tools such as iperf in testing the throughput and sflow in visualizing and monitoring the network at large.
S5: An Application Sensitive QoS Assurance System via SDN
This paper proposes a novel QoS measurement framework based on the vertical QoS mapping between the metrics at different network layers, and provides a series of QoS guarantee mechanisms, including intelligent call admission control, optimized queue management, and QoS-routing, to guarantee the QoS metrics for the corresponding application.
Hierarchical Two Dimensional Queuing: A Scalable Approach for Traffic Shaping using Software Defined Networking
This paper proposes an optimization followed by a two dimensional queue management policy, called Hierarchical Two Dimension Queuing (H2DQ), over a software controlled differentiated service architecture to ensure both the service requirements and fairness for the elephant as well as mice flows.
A QoS-Based Flow Assignment for Traffic Engineering in Software-Defined Networks
A Quality-of-Service (QoS) based Flow Assignment algorithm which enables the computation of end-to-end path for traffic flows guaranteeing the QoS requirements including bandwidth, end- to-end delay and packet loss probability is proposed.
A dynamic QoS management system with flow classification platform for software-defined networks
Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can provide excellent QoS with little overhead, where the rate-limit policies can be implemented in one to several seconds for different applications through the bandwidth management mechanism.
A network monitor and controller using only OpenFlow
A network monitor that provides basic Quality of Service (QoS) parameters without the addition of a probe in the network equipment, making the system independent of suppliers.


Failure to thrive: QoS and the culture of operational networking

It is argued that IP multicast defines a functional limit-case for deployable complexity in today's Internet, relevant to the deployment of QoS, since many flavors of QOS entail equal or greater complexity.
An Architecture for Differentiated Service
An architecture for implementing scalable service differentiation in the Internet achieves scalability by aggregating traffic classification state which is conveyed by means of IP-layer packet marking using the DS field [DSFIELD].

The authors propose a service discipline, called the rate-controlled static-priority (RCSP) queuing discipline, that provides throughput, delay, delay jitter, and loss free guarantees in a
Does over-provisioning become more or less efficient as networks grow larger?
This paper investigates the influence that increasing network size has on the efficacy of over-provisioning in absorbing a certain range of traffic variations and preserving performance guarantees and develops a general model that accounts for network topology, base offered traffic, and traffic variations.
FlowVisor: A Network Virtualization Layer
This paper builds a research platform which allows multiple network experiments to run side-by-side with production traffic while still providing isolation and hardware forwarding speeds and presents a new approach to switch virtualization in which the same hardware forwarding plane can be shared among multiple logical networks, each with distinct forwarding logic.
NOX: towards an operating system for networks
As anyone who has operated a large network can attest, enterprise networks are difficult to manage. That they have remained so despite significant commercial and academic efforts suggests the need
