This thesis focuses on the design and use of software defined networking (SDN) in residential Internet service providers (ISPs), as well as innovative operational models that can be incorporated in broadband ecosystems. Though SDN addresses the challenges for bundled best-effort service provided by broadband operators for users, it does not distinguish between the different types of applications (video streaming, web-browsing, and large file transfers), nor does it cater to the varying needs of different household devices (entertainment tablets, work laptops, or connected appliances). This is a problem for end-users, who want to differentiate between applications and devices; for content providers (CPs), who want to exercise control over streams of high monetary value; and for Internet service providers (ISPs), who have to accommodate growing traffic volumes without additional revenues. This book develops a series of solution techniques that use SDN to find an optimal balance between the competing requirements of end-users, ISPs, and CPs. In addition to the design and discussions of various architectures, it provides technical details on real-world system implementations and prototypes. As such, it offers a valuable resource for researchers, network architects, network strategists, developers, and all other readers seeking to learn more about the practical value of SDN in future ISP networks.

Why the Internet was designed to be the way it is, and how it could be different, now and in the future. How do you design an internet? The architecture of the current Internet is the product of basic design decisions made early in its history. What would an internet look like if it were designed, today, from the ground up? In this book, MIT computer scientist David Clark explains how the Internet is actually put together, what requirements it was designed to meet, and why different design decisions would create different internets. He does not take today's Internet as a given but tries to learn from it, and from alternative proposals for what an internet might be, in order to draw some general conclusions about network architecture. Clark discusses the history of the Internet, and how a range of potentially conflicting requirements—including longevity, security, availability, economic viability, management, and meeting the needs of society—shaped its character. He addresses both the technical aspects of the Internet and its broader social and economic contexts. He describes basic design approaches and explains, in terms accessible to nonspecialists, how networks are designed to carry out their functions. (An appendix offers a more technical discussion of network functions for readers who want the details.) He considers a range of alternative proposals for how to design an internet, examines in detail the key requirements a successful design must meet, and then imagines how to design a future internet from scratch. It's not that we should expect anyone to do this; but, perhaps, by conceiving a better future, we can push toward it.

Intelligent Broadband Networks Edited by lakovos Venieris National Technical University of Athens, Greece and Heinrich Hussmann Dresden University of Technology , Germany 'Intelligent network elements' monitor the flow of user service requests, which enables Intelligent Networks (IN) to manage and control transmission, services and connections, and service allocation across the network automatically. IN can efficiently handle and control complex multiparty, multiconnection multimedia services when integrated with Broadband ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) signaling. This book provides an overview of the current status and the future trends in Broadband network evolution and multimedia services. It includes studies that cover all the issues of IN-based Broadband networks including: abstract functional models, software and hardware implementation requirements and techniques, interoperability with other non-IN and IN systems like TINA, and Internet, practical experience from prototype implementation and transitional pilot demonstrations, and system performance and scalability. Unlike any other work on IN currently available, case studies of IN-based networks supporting a Virtual Private Network, Video on Demand and Broadband Video Conferencing Services are used as the basis for presenting service deployment techniques, as well as for evaluating performance results. The wide scope of topics covered in this book is crucial to network managers, multimedia communications engineers, researchers as well as students of relevant fields, such as: * Integration of Intelligent Functions into Broadband networks * Flexible, modular architecture reducing the system complexity and enabling easy migration to implementation * Methodology and models for evaluating system design options * Up-to-the-minute research not available in any other single volume

Software Defined Networking is revolutionizing the networking world. While the industry transitions to a software-centric architecture, a clear definition of SDN remains murky at best. This book clarifies the current industry confusion about what SDN is, why it's important, and most importantly the protocols and use cases that define SDN. OpenFlow (OF) is a critical piece of the SDN puzzle. While SDN solutions exist that do not require OF, it is undeniable that OF helped spur the innovation in SDN. The history of OF, its current and future status, and the associated use cases will be explained in detail in this book. Lastly, the book attempts to lay out SDN deployments that are real and current today, and apply practicality to the vast world of SDN architectures.

The mobile market has experienced unprecedented growth over the last few decades. Consumer trends have shifted towards mobile internet services supported by 3G and 4G networks worldwide. Inherent to existing networks are problems such as lack of spectrum, high energy consumption, and inter-cell interference. These limitations have led to the emergence of 5G technology. It is clear that any 5G system will integrate optical communications, which is already a mainstay of wide area networks. Using an optical core to route 5G data raises significant questions of how wireless and optical can coexist in synergy to provide smooth, end-to-end communication pathways. Optical and Wireless Convergence for 5G Networks explores new emerging technologies, concepts, and approaches for seamlessly integrating optical-wireless for 5G and beyond. Considering both fronthaul and backhaul perspectives, this timely book provides insights on managing an ecosystem of mixed and multiple access network communications focused on optical-wireless convergence. Topics include Fiber–Wireless (FiWi), Hybrid Fiber-Wireless (HFW), Visible Light Communication (VLC), 5G optical sensing technologies, approaches to real-time IoT applications, Tactile Internet, Fog Computing (FC), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and many others. This book aims to provide an inclusive survey of 5G optical-wireless requirements, architecture developments, and technological solutions.
