OpenCache: Experimentation on a Grand Scale

To address the VoD distribution challenge, we have developed OpenCache; an in-network caching plat- form that leverages Software Defined Networking (SDN) to provide unprecedented levels of control and flexibility. OpenCaches functionality is based on a number of powerful interfaces that are designed to offer transparent caching with the use of OpenFlow. The core entities of OpenCache, namely the OpenCache Controller and the OpenCache Nodes (see Figure 1), operate in harmony with an OpenFlow Controller to create a content delivery platform that can be deployed into SDN-enabled networks.
