Distributed Software-Defined Networking Emulation

Student thesis: Master thesis (including HD thesis)

  • Lukas Buch Jordell
Software-Defined Networking is an emergent field within networking, which takes a new approach to network management over traditional networks, by abstract control logic from the forwarding functions of network functions. The migration between the two are not withstanding issues and challenges relating to the migration of Operating Support Systems, Re-factoring application architectures and training and technological implementation surrounding SDN components.

In this project, the concept of network emulation is introduced, and a distributed emulated testbed is proposed. The proposed prototype seeks solve for the stipulated issues and challenges, by enabling developers to implement SDN applications and test and monitor SDN controller and OpenFlow interaction and configurations, by providing a dynamically provisioned and emulated data layer that these may manage.
