Special Issue: Software Defined Networking

The numbers of devices connected as well as the amount of traffic in the network have increased exponentially in the last years. Moreover, the emergence and maturity of new services and use cases such as mobility, server virtualization, cloud computing and Internet of Things have been driven, and somehow restricted, by the limitations of actual network architectures.

Software Defined Networking is a new way of thinking the networks. SDN separates the control and data planes in network devices and logically centralizes the control of the network. This paradigm makes easy the development of new services and applications. Moreover, SDN also has impulsed new concepts in networks such as Network Operating Systems (NOS), High Level Network Operating Languages and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). SDN has the potential to revolutionize the way networks are built.

The aim of this special issue is to publish research papers reflecting the most recent research and application results in Software Defined Network and Network Functions Virtualization.

The following topical areas will be covered in this special issue, but are not limited to:

- Theoretical foundation of separation of control and data plane architecture
- Northbound and Southbound Programming of Software Defined Networks
- Standardization of SDN interfaces
- Advances for enabling SDN and NFV
- Orchestration of Virtual Network Resources
- Testing and Security analysis for SDN
- Experiences deploying new SDN Applications and Services
- SDN-enabled multi-platform convergence
- SDN-NFV analysis and market expectations
- Co-existence and Integration of SDN with traditional architectures
- Performance Analysis on single and multi-controller architectures

All submissions are subject to the journal’s peer-review procedures. The authors should follow the journal’s Author Guide at when preparing papers for submission to the Special Issue.

The Authors should indicate “Special Issue on Software Defined Networking” on their manuscripts.

All papers must be submitted through the journal’s Manuscript Central system:
