Upgrade-aware virtual infrastructure mapping in software-defined elastic optical networks

Upgrade-aware virtual infrastructure mapping in software-defined elastic optical networks An emerging use case in software-defined networking is to provide efficient mapping of multiple virtual infrastructures (VIs) simultaneously over the same physical substrate (PS) which can increase the resource utilization of the PS, thus improving its provider’s revenue. In this paper, for the first time, we investigate a practical and yet theoretically challenging issue related to dynamic VI mapping in software-defined elastic optical networks while considering the presence of possible upgrade of the VIs and the optical layer constraints, which has not been addressed in any of the existing studies. More specifically, we investigate the following aspects: (1) Which revenue models are appropriate? (2) How to map a new VI request or to upgrade an existing VI to maximize the PS providers revenue? In particular, we study two different revenue models in terms of the incremental pricing policy and the binding pricing policy and propose a number of efficient heuristics to solve the upgrade-aware VI mapping (U-VIM) problem. We also perform comprehensive performance evaluation in different scenario, and the results show that plan-ahead is a desirable strategy when conducting VI mapping in the presence of VI upgrade. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

An emerging use case in software-defined networking is to provide efficient mapping of multiple virtual infrastructures (VIs) simultaneously over the same physical substrate (PS) which can increase the resource utilization of the PS, thus improving its provider’s revenue. In this paper, for the first time, we investigate a practical and yet theoretically challenging issue related to dynamic VI mapping in software-defined elastic optical networks while considering the presence of possible upgrade of the VIs and the optical layer constraints, which has not been addressed in any of the existing studies. More specifically, we investigate the following aspects: (1) Which revenue models are appropriate? (2) How to map a new VI request or to upgrade an existing VI to maximize the PS providers revenue? In particular, we study two different revenue models in terms of the incremental pricing policy and the binding pricing policy and propose a number of efficient heuristics to solve the upgrade-aware VI mapping (U-VIM) problem. We also perform comprehensive performance evaluation in different scenario, and the results show that plan-ahead is a desirable strategy when conducting VI mapping in the presence of VI upgrade.
