Software-Defined Inter-Networking: Enabling Coordinated Qos Control Across The Internet

G. Petropoulos, F. Sardis, S. Spirou, T. Mahmoodi
2016 Zenodo  
This paper proposes an online mechanism (SDNI) that considers application requirements and uses SDN to negotiate traffic policies between neighbouring operator domains.  ...  A prototype and a small-scale testbed have been implemented to assess SDNI's feasibility.  ...  After a successful negotiation, inter-domain link status and QoS metrics are periodically checked, ensuring that application QoS requirements and SLA parameters are met.  ...

Spyros Denazis, Lidia Yamamoto
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This is achieved by generating commands to programmable network elements via open interfaces.  ...  The Internet network technology today does not allow a sufficient degree of autonomy to express user choices, constraints and preferences in order to dynamically obtain the most suitable services.  ...  A number of agent-based systems to enable provider selection and inter-domain interactions have been proposed [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] .  ...

Slicing Challenges For Operators [chapter]

Luis M. Contreras
2018 Zenodo  
An initial idea of network slices in standardization1 was introduced in 2011 by the ITU-T (ITU-T, 2011) in the form of logically isolated network partitions (LINP), with a slice being considered as a unit  ...  of programmable resources such as network, computation and storage.  ...  Regarding the programmable control of the slices, two levels of SDN control can be considered for a given slice.  ...
