Network virtualization has evoked interest among researchers as a promising solution for developing flexible and manageable architectures for future Internet. One of the major challenges in network virtualization is the efficient allocation of substrate resources to the Virtual Networks (VNs) - a problem known as Virtual Network Embedding (VNE). Most of the past research on VNE has been focused on algorithms to allocate resources to VNs. The problem of reconfiguration, however, is relatively… CONTINUE READING
