  • Talk #1 - Title: OpenFlow+ for IPv6 Source Address Validation - Slides
    Prof. Jun Bi, Tsinghua Univ., China

    Short Abstract:

    We proposed some extensions for OpenFlow (OpenFlow+) , including flow table extension, control mode extension, OpenFlow protocol extension. To make OpenFlow deployment low-cost and deployable, we proposed an approach to run OpenFlow in today's router called OpenRouter. We have implemented it in today's commercial router and apply it for IPv6 Source Address Validation. We believe that OpenFlow+ will help to speed up the business development of Openflow in large-scale usage and applications.

  • Talk #3 - Title: Improving Robustness of Inter-Autonomous OpenFlow Network by Extending its Control Model - Slides
    Othman Othman M.M. Kyushu University.

    Short Abstract:

    In this presentation we will show our method that aims to enable OpenFlow network to increase its robustness, especially at the edge routers (points of intersection) of two autonomous systems. OpenFlow is a promising future internet enabling technology that has a great potential to improve the current Internet by providing new functionalities and a new control schemes, and thus enabling new smarter applications to be created. However there is a debate going on; whether OpenFlow and its controllers are scalable enough to meet operational demands of networks. Thus, our study aims to provide OpenFlow networks with the ability absorb load off the overloaded equipment in a more automatic manner. The main strategy used, is to provide each autonomous system the ability to distribute load into its own network, which contributes in eliminating load off the intersection points within each network, and by having each autonomous system doing so the overall robustness of the network will be achieved. This is done by extending the OpenFlow?s control model to support cooperative distributed model in addition to the centralized controller model, and by introducing algorithms and protocols to do so.

  • Talk #4 - Title: Architectural Framework and Feasibility Testing for Auto Managable Future Networks and Services - Slides
    Tae-sang Choi - ETRI, Korea

    Short Abstract:

    As demonstrated by SON (Self-Organizing Networks) in LTE, and many other cases where network automation and autonomic principles of network operation have been devised/experimented, it is now widely agreed that autonomic networking and self-management is a new networking paradigm that brings many benefits to network management and operation, such as OPEX reduction and enhanced network intelligence through adaptive control of network resources. The paradigm includes so-called self-* features of network operation such as self-configuration, self-diagnosing, self-healing/self-repair and self-optimization. Since Future Networks is currently under design phase and enabling autonomics and self-management capabilities in its architecture is essential, it is appropriate timing to specify the required capabilities in the Future Networks architecture. To support such autonomics and self-management principles and capabilities for Future Networks, This talk proposes autonomic management architecture framework which includes high-level autonomic management architecture, functional entities, and use case scenarios. Also this talk addresses our testing methods and its results for the feasibility of the proposed architecture.

  • Talk #5 - Title: Flow space virtualization on shared physical OpenFlow networks - Slides
    Hiroaki Yamanaka, Shuji Ishii, Eiji Kawai (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology), Masayoshi Shimamura, Katsuyoshi Iida (Tokyo Institute of Technology), and Masato Tsuru (Kyushu Institute of Technology)

    Short Abstract:

    Sharing physical OpenFlow networks with multiple control planes (i.e., controllers) is necessary to accept multiple testbed users; a testbed user can control flows in his virtual network. A controller defines flows by flow space, which is a set of packet-header. For each controller of a virtual network, partial flow space is available by FlowVisor; however, distinct controllers cannot use the same packet-header because the available flow space is just exclusive partial flow space to a controller allocated from the whole flow space of physical OpenFlow networks. In our proposal, virtual flow space is provided to controllers of virtual networks to allow using the same packet-header by distinct controllers, while exclusive flow space is allocated to each controller of a virtual network as FlowVisor.
