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.
