    Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualisation has brought a revolution within the telecom market landscape. Initial proof-of-concept prototypes for NFV-enabled solutions are being developed at the same ...
  • On the controller placement for designing a distributed SDN control layer 

    Jiménez Agudelo, Yury Andrea; Cervelló Pastor, Cristina; García García, Aurelio Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The software-defined network (SDN) advocates a centralized network control, where a controller manages a network from a global view of the network. Large SDN networks may consist of multiple controllers or controller domains ...
