geant Multi-domain Software Defined Network: exploring possibilities

Since the appearance of OpenFlow, the Software Defined Networking has become a hot topic inside the networking industry and academia. One of the topics currently under study, is the adaptation of SDNs to the multi-domain environment, as current OpenFlow lacks of mechanisms by itself to accomplish that. In this scenario, the GN3plus JRA2T1 task group is investigating how to integrate SDN/OpenFlow with the Network Services Framework, which has been proven useful for its application in multi-domain environments. The research is focused on two different areas. The first one tackles with the establishment of end-to-end connections across different domains where at least one of the domains is SDN/OpenFlow-enabled. The second one aims to provide isolated slices to experimenters where the resources belong to different domains.
