Network virtualization is recognized as an enabling technology for the Future Internet that overcomes network ossification. However, it introduces a set of challenges. In any network virtualization environment, the problem of optimally mapping virtual demands to physical resources, known as virtual network embedding (VNE), is a crucial challenge. This paper analyses the behaviour of the main algorithms proposed to solve VNE by means of the ALEVIN framework. The VNE algorithms are evaluated with regard to appropriate metrics such as: cost, revenue, and virtual network acceptance ratio. We also analyse the impact of the recently introduced hidden hop demand concept in the performance of the VNE algorithms.
