    On the analogy between quantum circuit design automation and virtual network embedding

    Proceedings of 34th ACM/SIGAPP Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC'19) [April 8-12, 2019; Limassol, Cyprus], New York, NY, USA

    Quantum computing and network virtualisation share more similarities than it would seem on first thought: both reach their potential by using the underlying hardware as efficiently as possible - a classical computer science problem. Quantum computing research has already been focusing on key problems related to the scarcity of the quantum hardware, hoping that once scalable quantum computers will be available, quantum circuit design automation methods (QCDA) are mature. Consequently, a significant methodological apparatus exists for a technology envisioned to scale in the future. Likewise, the optimisation of resource assignment for virtual networks has received much attention in the literature. As such, any scalability improvement of virtual network embedding (VNE) would be of high practical importance in the present. There is an interesting and promising relationship between VNE and QCDA. This work introduces the possibility to use QCDA methodology for VNE, and vice versa. VNE problem instances can be modeled using the quantum circuit formalism, and we offer some basic examples. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work that highlights this analogy.

    Generating Random Service Function Chain Embedding Problems

    IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (NFV-SDN’17) [Berlin; November 6-8, 2017]

    2017

    DOI: 10.1109/NFV-SDN.2017.8169834

    Abstract anzeigen

    The combination of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) promises to provide highly flexible and configurable network infrastructures. This relies, however, on an efficient assignment of the respective Service Function Chain (SFC). This is related to Virtual Network Embedding (VNE), where algorithms are devised to provide such an assignment. To evaluate and compare the efficiency of such algorithms, well-designed embedding problems have to be generated. This paper presents a new mechanism for generating embedding problems: Problems are generated from a given set of SFCs such that each generated problem is known in advance to have an optimal solution. Experimenters can use this approach to investigate specific properties of embedding algorithms. The approach, thereby, facilitates more detailed evaluation.

    Modeling Security Requirements for VNE algorithms

    Proceedings of VALUETOOLS 2016/10th EAI International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools (Taormina, Italy; October 25-28, 2016)

    2016

    Abstract anzeigen

    Public and private Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds are widely used by individuals and organizations to provision flexible virtual computing resources on demand. Virtual Network Embedding (VNE) algorithms are employed in this context to provide an automated resource assignment. With multiple involved parties security-aware Virtual Machine (VM) placement becomes highly relevant for production environments. Moreover, VNE algorithms should also consider the security requirements of the interconnections between VMs, thereby extending the problem to networks. This paper discusses security requirements of Virtual Networks (VNs) and shows how they can be modeled in VNE to map them to the provided security mechanisms in the physical network. The paper also presents an implementation of this security-aware VNE model in the public simulation platform ALEVIN, demonstrating the applicability with a realistic use case of such a model.

    Generating Virtual Network Embedding Problems with Guaranteed Solutions

    IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management, vol. 13, no. 3, pp. 1-14

    2016

    DOI: 10.1109/TNSM.2016.2596802

    Abstract anzeigen

    The efficiency of network virtualization depends on the appropriate assignment of resources. The underlying problem, called Virtual Network Embedding, has been much discussed in the literature, and many algorithms have been proposed, attempting to optimize the resource assignment in various respects. Evaluation of those algorithms requires a large number of randomly generated embedding scenarios. This paper presents a novel scenario generation approach and demonstrates how to produce scenarios with a guaranteed exact solution, thereby facilitating better evaluation of embedding algorithms.

    Distributed and scalable embedding of virtual networks

    Journal of Network and Computer Applications, vol. 56, no. October, pp. 124-136

    Abstract anzeigen

    Abstract Network virtualization is widely regarded as a key technology for the Future Internet, enabling the deployment of new network protocols without changing dissimilar hardware devices. This leads to the problem of mapping virtual demands to physical resources, known as Virtual Network Embedding (VNE). Current VNE algorithms do not scale with respect to the substrate network size. Therefore, these algorithms are not applicable in large-scale scenarios where virtual networks have to be embedded in a timely manner. This paper discusses DPVNE, a Distributed and Generic VNE framework: It runs cost-oriented centralized embedding algorithms in a distributed way, spreading workload across the substrate network instead of concentrating it on one single node (as centralized algorithms do). Several state-of-the-art algorithms were evaluated running inside the DPVNE framework. Results show that DPVNE leads to runtime improvements in large-scale scenarios and embedding results are kept comparable.

    Network virtualization is seen as an enabling technology for the Future Internet. In this context, many Virtual Network Embedding algorithms have been introduced in literature so far. This paper discusses an open source framework for the evaluation of such algorithms. The paper describes features provided by the framework, how to use the framework for evaluating these algorithms, and how to extend the software with respect to novel algorithms and simulation scenarios. Lessons learned are presented, describing how the software evolved towards a mature and highly extensible simulation framework.

    An Approach to Energy-efficient Virtual Network Embeddings

    2013 IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2013) [Ghent, Belgium; May 27-31, 2013]

    Abstract anzeigen

    Network Virtualization is recognized as a key technology for the Future Internet. Energy-efficiency is one of the main challenges in future networking environments. Most algorithms for mapping virtual resources to substrate resources however do not consider energy as a factor for the mapping. In order to evaluate the energy-efficiency of such a mapping, an energy model and appropriate energy-aware metrics are needed. This paper discusses how an algorithm can be modified to take energy-efficiency into account. The modified algorithm is then evaluated, showing that energy-efficiency can be increased with only a minor impact on embedding quality regarding other metrics.

    Abstract anzeigen

    Network virtualization is recognized as an enabling technology for the future Internet. It aims to overcome the resistance of the current Internet to architectural change. Application of this technology relies on algorithms that can instantiate virtualized networks on a substrate infrastructure, optimizing the layout for service-relevant metrics. This class of algorithms is commonly known as “Virtual Network Embedding (VNE)” algorithms. This paper presents a survey of current research in the VNE area. Based upon a novel classification scheme for VNE algorithms a taxonomy of current approaches to the VNE problem is provided and opportunities for further research are discussed.

    Virtual Energy Information Network: A Resilience Perspective

    e&i Elektrotechnik & Informationstechnik (Special Issue on ’Smart Grid and Security’), vol. 130, no. 4-5, pp. 121-126

    2013

    Abstract anzeigen

    Increasing demand in energy consumption, missed modernisations, and the increasing difficulties in predicting power production due to volatile renewable energy sources (e.g., based on wind or sun) impose major challenges to the power grid. Power supply and power demand are closely interconnected with the need to maintain the power grid in a stable state with a sufficient quality of power. This requires energy-relevant information to be exchanged through the so called Energy Information Network. Communication, however, is challenging within the Energy Information Network due to privacy, security, resiliency, and quality-of-service requirements. Particularly, the resilience of communication within the Energy Information Network needs to be considered to maintain the power grid in a stable and controlled state. This paper suggests a Virtualised Energy Information Network (VEIN), where the Energy Information Network is divided into multiple virtual networks that run over a common substrate network. Furthermore, this paper discusses benefits of this approach in terms of privacy, security, and resilience and points out open research questions.
