    In recent years, various network virtualization techniques have been proposed for flexibly supporting heterogeneous services over virtual network platforms. However, systematic views on how virtual network resources (VNRs) can be practically managed in such open environments has been missing till now. To fill the gap, we present in this article a two-dimensional architecture for end-to-end VNR man... View full abstract»

    To explore the effectiveness of network protocols and services, it is desirable to deploy and evaluate them under a realistic network setting. However, experimentation in production networks is difficult in practice, since it may involve modifications of underlying routers or other hardware components and disrupt the normal operations of existing protocols. We propose VegaNet, a virtual network ar... View full abstract»

    Over the past decade, virtualization technology has taken the world over by storm. This explosion has led the industry to market already existing virtualization technology, also known as infrastructure as a service, with the buzz word cloud computing. There has been much promise for return on investment, leading to significant research and a myriad of innovations in this domain. Despite the best e... View full abstract»

    Recently, computer virtualization has become an important technology in nearly every large organization's IT infrastructure. At its core, computer virtualization allows a single physical machine to be split into several virtual machines. Through the use of VMs, organizations can decrease operational costs through server consolidation and better utilization of computational resources. VMs also allo... View full abstract»

    Network virtualization provides a powerful way to run multiple networks over a shared substrate and has been recognized as a key enabler for overcoming the perceived ossification of the current Internet. This article addresses a specific aspect of network virtualization, virtual network embedding (VNE), which primarily refers to the efficient mapping of virtual resources onto physical ones. Specif...

    IANA exhausted its IPv4 address space in 2011, and IPv6 is the next generation to replace IPv4. However, the IPv6 transition techniques are still immature and holding back the development of the next-generation Internet. Hence, IPv4-IPv6 coexistence is becoming increasingly imminent. During the coexistence period, the Internet will consist of IPv4-only, IPv6-only, and dual-stack segments. Both the... View full abstract»
