Towards Deterministic Reconfigurable Networks

Zikai George Zhou, Wolfgang Kellerer


Compared with legacy networks, programmable networks are highly
flexible and need to be reconfigured dynamically. In this early work paper, we study
the fast and consistent network update which is the key enabler to realize deterministic
reconfigurable networks. The reconfiguration speed is one side of the coin. The
ongoing best-effort traffic cannot be interrupted during the network reconfiguration
as well. In terms of reconfiguration speed, we implement and compare our method
with the state-of-the-art decentralized and centralized update methods.
