With network virtualization, the physical infrastructure can be partitioned into multiple parallel virtual networks for sharing purposes. However, different transport technologies or quality of service (QoS) levels may impact both the requested amount of resources and the characteristics of different virtual instances that can be built on top of a single physical infrastructure. In this paper we propose a novel mixed integer linear programming (MILP) formulation for different schemes of… CONTINUE READING
