Initially, SDN has been promoted as a simpler and
more flexible way of managing networks than traditional
approaches. However, it is unlikely that a single SDN
controller vendor will have best-in-class implementation
of all network services, so the coexistence of several
managing controllers will be a mandatory feature of
SDN network management in the near future. Similarly,
there is a price for generality and expressiveness to be
paid with efficiency of the data plane representations.
We consider challenges from the above domains and
emphasize the importance of new abstractions for both
control and data planes to address heterogeneity of
manageable network state.
Kirill Kogan is currently a Research Assistant Professor at IMDEA Networks Institute.
His research interests are related to admission control and buffer management, packet classification, software-defined networking, network functions visualization. Prior to joining IMDEA Networks Institute he worked as a Technical Leader at Cisco Systems and later a postdoctoral researcher at University of Waterloo and Purdue University. He holds a PhD in CSE from Ben-Gurion University.
