Abstract [en]

The concept of software-defined networking (SDN)recently  gained  huge  momentum  in  the  industry,  driven  mainlyby  IT  companies  interested  in  datacenter  applications.  In  thispaper, however, we consider SDN applied in the carrier domain,which poses additional requirements on the network architecture,including  network  management  functions.  We  derive  concreterequirements  for  the  use-case  of  a  virtualized  multi-provideraccess/aggregation  network  based  on  carrier-grade  SDN.  Wethen provide initial architectural considerations for integrationof  network  management  extensions  to  the  SDN  framework  asdefined  by  the  Open  Networking  Foundation  (ONF).  Architec-tural considerations include definition of the required entities andtheir interactions. Finally, we apply the proposed architecture onthe access/aggregation network use-case, outlining procedures ofhow  the  network  management  extensions  can  enable  networkwide and node specific management & configuration
