Our work evaluates the use of software-defined networking (SDN) for reliable communication. Reliable communication has become an important topic in many areas, including energy communication networks or, more generally, automation control networks. Electrical grids are developing into smart grids, which depend heavily on reliability, robustness and optimized resource usage. On the other side, the separation of communication and network control proposed by SDN opens new possibilities for… CONTINUE READING
