SDN-NGAS 2014 - Workshop on Software Defined Networks for a New Generation of Applications and Services
August 20, 2014
Niagara Falls, Canada
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a promising architecture that is reinventing the way of thinking the networks. The decoupling of control and data planes in network devices and the centralized control of the networks remove the rigidity of today’s networks. This new concept enables the integration between different heterogeneous architectures and facilitates the creation of Network Applications and Services more adapted to the needs of customers. Moreover, this New Generation of Application and Services opens the door of innovative business opportunities. However, the potential techno-economic sustainability of SDN requires the consensus between research community, vendors, regulators and customers. This Workshop represents a unique opportunity to expose the latest advances in this technology as well as share experiences and build collaborations.
Topics for this Workshop:
- Advancement in the development of Applications and Services for SDN networks
- Advancement in Southbound and Northbound APIs for SDN networks.
– SDN programming and simulation.
– Tools for Management and Troubleshooting of SDN based networks.
– Interoperable service-oriented technologies to share real world data among heterogeneous devices.
– Advanced security, privacy, authentication, trust and verification with the SDN technology.
– Integration of Software Defined technologies with traditional network architectures.
– Performance analysis on single and multi-controller architectures.
– Orchestration of virtual network resources.
– Other related topics.
