With the increasing popularity of Software defined network (SDN), designing a scalable SDN control plane becomes a critical problem. An effective approach to improving the scalability is to design distributed architecture of SDN control plane. However, how to evaluate the scalability of SDN control planes remains unexplored. In this paper, we propose a metric of scalability for SDN control planes, and study three typical SDN control plane structures, including centralized, decentralized and… CONTINUE READING
