Title: OpenFlow: A new Paradigm for Campus Networks
Authors: Mueller, Paul
Keywords: Open Flow
Data Center
Issue Date: 6-Jan-2016
Series/Report no.: Technical Report
Abstract: OpenFlow, one instantiation of the idea of software-defined-networking (SDN), is an open standard to handle the data plane and the control plane of current network devices separately. That allows running different (maybe experimental) protocols in the networks besides the production network. Today OpenFlow can be offered as a dedicated OpenFlow switch or the functionality is added as a feature to commercial Ethernet switches, routers and other network devices such as wireless access points. In this paper we first discuss the general concept of software-defined-networking (SDN). This introduction is followed by a description of the OpenFlow concept as well as an advanced implementation of this idea called FLARE. Furthermore it will be discussed how these concepts will affect current data centers and campus networks. In a short conclusion the general ideas will be wrapped up and a short outlook for future directions is given.
