  author={Janusz A. Brzozowski and John Leddy and Clarence Filsfils and Roberta Maglione and Mark Townsley},
The Source Packet Routing in Networking (SPRING) architecture describes how Segment Routing can be used to steer packets through an IPv6 or MPLS network using the source routing paradigm. This document illustrates some use cases for Segment Routing in an IPv6-only environment. 
SDN Architecture and Southbound APIs for IPv6 Segment Routing Enabled Wide Area Networks
The advantages of complementing the SRv6 technology with an software defined networking (SDN) based approach in backbone networks is described and an Intent-based emulation system to build realistic and reproducible experiments is realized. Expand
RFC 8663: MPLS Segment Routing over IP
  • 2020
MPLS Segment Routing (SR-MPLS) is a method of source routing a packet through an MPLS data plane by imposing a stack of MPLS labels on the packet to specify the path together with any packet-specificExpand

CG4SR: Near Optimal Traffic Engineering for Segment Routing with Column Generation
This paper leverages column generation, a widely used technique for solving large scale linear programs, combined with a novel dynamic program for solving the pricing problem to reach near optimal solutions with gap guarantees by also computing a strong lower-bound tighter than the multi-commodity flow relaxation.

Enabling Programmable Infrastructure for Multi-Tenant Data Centers
This dissertation presents the design and implementation of PISCES: a programmable, protocol-independent software switch derived from Open vSwitch (OVS), a fixed-function hypervisor switch, whose behavior is customized using P4, and demonstrates how such programmable switches help build scalable infrastructure services by exploiting the unique characteristics of data-center networks.
