Title: Software Defined Networking for a Heterogeneous Network
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Basic
Description: Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a key enabler to decrease the complexity of network management. SDN allows networks to employ a unified control plane in order to manage the network devices in a centralized manner. The control platform, known as the SDN controller, coordinates the traffic forwarding by applying forwarding rules to the network devices, remotely. The complexity of network management can be further decreased by applying network virtualization together with SDN. Network virtualization is a technique in which a physical network is partitioned into several virtual networks, known as slices, and each slice is controlled by an SDN controller. The performance of SDN networks (without network virtualization) have been studied in various applications. In this thesis, we are aiming at studying performance of an SDN network where the physical network is partitioned into a number of slices. We also consider a network as a combination of wired and wireless links. The main intention is to perform several experiments on a real hardware to obtain various performance parameters, such as latency, jitter and throughput. This thesis work is a continuation of previous thesis work (Network Virtualization in Multi-Hop Heterogeneous Architectures) and the student will be provided with the architecture from that.
