Using SDN to outsource and optimize Internet Routing

Posted by on 12 April 2013 | 0 Comments

Researchers from ETH Zurich will present a poster on SDN and the Outsourcing of Routing during the Open Networking Summit taking place on 16-17 April 2013.

They will present the unconventional idea of outsourcing the routing control logic of an ISP to an external trusted party. In this context, Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the key to a successful outsourcing model.

The researchers will outline the key idea of outsourcing routing and the on-going research at ETH on the design and implementation of a multi-domain routing OS. [extended abstract]
