Demonstration of High-availability communication based on Software-defined Networking
Thomas Pfeiffenberger and Ferdinand von Tüllenburg (2017): Demonstration of High-availability communication based on Software-defined Networking In: IMAGIN17/Wien
Abstract—This demonstration addresses the subject of highavailability communication by utilizing software-defined networking (SDN) and Fog/Edge-based network function virtualisation (NFV).
A particular focus is given on high available communication conceptually inspired by the parallel redundancy protocol (PRP) and high-availability seamless redundancy protocol (HSR). The usage of SDN and Fog/Edge-based NFV allows a more flexible management of high available communication infrastructure. It corresponds to the specific needs of certain applications and providing the necessary deep packet inspection capabilities at the right spot with sufficient performance.
The demonstration shows several test cases in context of a highavailability communication enabled SDN in an multi-application environment.
