Special Issue: Advanced Applications and Services on Software Defined
Networking (SDN) and Software Defined Sensor Networks (SDSN)

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a novel paradigm that is changing the
way we think of networks and communications. The basic idea of SDN is the
separation between data and control plane in network devices and the
centralized control of the network. This new global view of network
resources has led to tremendous advances in new intelligent network
services, usually not fulfilled by traditional architectures. In addition,
SDN reduces the complexity of network configuration and management. For
this reason, SDN-based applications are expected to experience an
exponential growth in the next few years including an extension of this
concept for example to infrastructure-less wireless networks (Software
Defined Sensor Networks SDSN). However, this paradigm shift creates new
challenges for both the industry and research communities. Efficient
resource management, security, quality of service or the integration with
other platforms such as cloud, big data or internet of things are still
open questions in this new model. To explore these research issues, this
special issue will present state-of-the-art of issues, current efforts, and
solutions for SDN and SDSN.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected based on their
quality and their relevance to this special issue. Potential topics
include, but are not limited to:

- SDN-SDSN applications for wireless, mobile and multimedia networks
- Advances in Southbound and Northbound APIs for SDN-SDSN networks
- Software Defined Networks programming and simulation
- Tools for management and troubleshooting of Software Defined based
- Interoperable service-oriented technologies to share real world data
among heterogeneous devices
- Integration of Software Defined technologies with traditional sensor
network architectures
- Scalable management of network, computing and storage capacity
- Advanced security, privacy, authentication, trust and verification with
the SDN-SDSN technology
- Performance analysis on single and multi-controller architectures
- Orchestration of virtual network resources

All submissions are subject to the journal’s peer-review procedures. The
authors should follow the journal’s Author Guide at
