Distributed Flow-Table Cache for OpenFlow Switch


Emerging Software-Defined Networking calls for fast update and access of many complex flow tables. We propose speed-up techniques based on programming multiple heterogeneous cores. We set up an experimental network to collect real traffic data. By analyzing the traffic patterns, we are able to allocate hardware and software resource optimally. In this talk, we will present the system architecture, the experimental network, and the policy design. Then we will speculate on challenges and opportunities of MPSOCs for this emerging application.


Youn-Long Lin is a Chair professor with the Department of Computer Science, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. His research interests include physical design automation, high-level synthesis, video coding VLSI architectures, and software-defined networking. He was guest professor of Peking University and Waseda University. He co-founded Taiwan's Chip Implementation Center (CIC) and Global Unichip Corp., a fabless ASIC company. Professor Lin holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1987).
