Decentralizing SDN's Control Plane

Abstract : Motivated by the internets of the future, which will likely be considerably larger in size as well as highly heterogeneous and decentralized, we propose Decentralize-SDN, D-SDN, a framework that enables not only physical- but also logical distribution of the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) control plane. D-SDN accomplishes network control distribution by defining a hierarchy of controllers that can "match" an internet's organizational- and administrative structure. By delegating control between main controllers and secondary controllers, D-SDN is able to accommodate administrative decentralization and autonomy. It incorporates security as an integral part of the framework. This paper describes D-SDN and presents two use cases, namely network capacity sharing and public safety network services.
