Scalable Guaranteed-Bandwidth Multicast Service in Software Defined ISP networks

Abstract : New applications where anyone can broadcast video are becoming very popular on smartphones. With the advent of high definition video, ISP providers may take the opportunity to propose new high quality broadcast services to their clients. Because of its centralized control plane, Software Defined Networking (SDN) seems an ideal way to deploy such a service in a flexible and bandwidth-efficient way. But deploying large scale multicast services on SDN requires smart group membership management and a bandwidth reservation mechanism to support QoS guarantees that should neither waste bandwidth nor impact too severely best effort traffic. In this paper, we propose a Network Function Virtualization based solution for Software Defined ISP networks to implement scalable multicast group management. Then, we propose the Lazy Load balancing Multicast (L2BM) routing algorithm for sharing the network capacity in a friendly way between guaranteed-bandwidth multicast traffic and best-effort traffic. Our implementation of the framework made on Floodlight controllers and Open vSwitches is used to study the performance of L2BM.
