IET Networks


Special Issue: Software Defined Networking

The numbers of devices connected as well as the amount of traffic in the
network have increased exponentially in the last years. Moreover, the
emergence and maturity of new services and use cases such as mobility,
server virtualization, cloud computing and Internet of Things have been
driven, and somehow restricted, by the limitations of actual network

Software Defined Networking is a new way of thinking the networks. SDN
separates the control and data planes in network devices and logically
centralizes the control of the network. This paradigm makes easy the
development of new services and applications. Moreover, SDN also has
impulsed new concepts in networks such as Network Operating Systems (NOS),
High Level Network Operating Languages and Network Functions Virtualization
(NFV). SDN has the potential to revolutionize the way networks are built.

The aim of this special issue is to publish research papers reflecting the
most recent research and application results in Software Defined Network
and Network Functions Virtualization.

The following topical areas will be covered in this special issue, but are
not limited to:

- Theoretical foundation of separation of control  and data plane
- Northbound and Southbound Programming of Software Defined Networks
- Standardization of SDN interfaces
- Advances for enabling SDN and NFV
- Orchestration of Virtual Network Resources
- Testing and Security analysis for SDN
- Experiences deploying new SDN Applications and Services
- SDN-enabled multi-platform convergence
- SDN-NFV analysis and market expectations
- Co-existence and Integration of SDN with traditional architectures
- Performance Analysis on single and multi-controller architectures
