Estimating the Overhead of Flow Control in Hierarchical Software-Defined Networks
Keywords:architecture network, fractal topology, hierarchical system,, hybrid traffic, scalability, software-defined network
Software defined networks of a large dimension have a complex and branched structure; they are inherent in them by continuous expansion and dynamic characteristics, which significantly limits the application of known methods for their modeling and optimization. Consequently, the problems of the analysis of next-generation networks at the system level and the study of their new features, mainly due to large size and complex geometry (topology), are relevant. The tasks of constructing optimal structures of complex networks solved by means of the theory of hierarchical systems, which is widely used to describe network structures, in particular, flow control networks. The work is devoted to the load balancing in SDN depending on their topological hierarchical structure and type of traffic (vertical, horizontal, and hybrid).
