Abstract

Software Defined Network (SDN) may significantly enhance network and service management by enabling separated control and data planes. The centralized OpenFlow controller with a global vision of network states offers a promising approach to realizing flow-based admission control for supporting Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning in SDN. However, per-flow process brings in challenges to scalability of OpenFlow-based SDN. Flow aggregation has been explored as an effective method to address this issue. In this paper, we investigate admission control with flow aggregation for QoS provisioning in SDN. Specifically we propose a model for admission control with flow aggregation and develop the analysis techniques for determining the required amounts of bandwidth and buffer space at OpenFlow-enabled switches for meeting performance requirements in delay and packet loss. Network calculus is applied in our modeling and analysis; which makes our method applicable to general OpenFlow-based SDNs with various implementations. Numerical experiment results are also provided to evaluate effectiveness of the developed modeling and analysis techniques.
