Software Defined Networks (SDN) is a new approach to computer networking that provides simple network management by the abstraction of higher level functionality. The SDN framework enables flexible and frequent updates, and it introduces challenges in terms of consistency and scalability.
This seminar considers the time-based approach to updates in SDN networks, which has recently been proposed by Mizrahi and Moses. We demonstrate a time-based approach that provides lower overhead, shorter time duration, and improved scalability, all without compromising consistency. In addition, we will introduce a time based tag-free (TBTF) update algorithm that allows to perform consistent network updates without using version tags.
