To investigate how GÉANT Connectivity Services could be provisioned in a future scenario with a clean slate approach based on an SDN enabled infrastructure.
Nowadays, GÉANT Connectivity Services are offered upon the deployed pre-SDN infrastructure (e.g. switches, routers and optical equipment). Currently, GÉANT offers flexible IP and P2P connectivity options. The former provides a shared IP infrastructure (i.e. GÉANT IP), whereas the latter provides static point-to-point connections (i.e. GÉANT Plus and GÉANT Lambda) and dynamic provisioning of circuits (i.e. GÉANT Bandwidth on Demand). This project investigates how this type of services could be provisioned in a future scenario with a clean slate approach based on a SDN enabled infrastructure. The main output of this research is a comprehensive model / framework / architecture to provision connectivity services based on the SDN technology.
The results of the DyNPaC project will be of interest not only to the research connectivity provider, but also to the ISPs in general, since it will develop the basic tools to leverage the use of SDN on the core network.
