PhD Thesis Proposal
Multi-Layer Virtual Transport Network Design and Management

Nowadays there is an increasing need for a general management paradigm,
which can simplify network management and further enable network
innovations. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an efficient way to make
the network programmable and reduce management complexity, however it is
plagued with limitations inherited from the legacy Internet (TCP/IP)
architecture. On the other hand, service overlay networks and virtual
networks are widely used to overcome deficiencies of the Internet.
However, most overlay/virtual networks are single-layered and lack dynamic
scope management. Furthermore, how to solve the joint problem of designing
and mapping the overlay/virtual network requests for better application and
network performance remains an understudied area.
In this thesis, in response to limitations of current SDN management
solutions and of the traditional single-layer overlay/virtual network
design, we propose a recursive approach to enterprise network management,
where network management is done through managing various Virtual Transport
Networks (VTNs) over different scopes (i.e., regions of operation).
Different from the traditional overlay/virtual network model which mainly
focuses on routing/tunneling, our VTN approach provides communication
service with explicit Quality-of-Service (QoS) support for applications via
transport flows, i.e., it involves all mechanisms (e.g., routing,
addressing, error and flow control, resource allocation) needed to meet
application requirements. Our approach inherently provides a multi-layer
solution for overlay/virtual network design.
The contributions of this thesis are threefold: (1) we propose a novel
VTN-based management approach to enterprise network management; (2) we
develop a framework for multi-layer VTN design and instantiate it to meet
specific application and network goals; and (3) we design and prototype a
VTN-based management architecture to validate our VTN design algorithms.
Our simulation and preliminary experimental results demonstrate the
flexibility of our VTN-based management approach and its performance
