NDNFlow: Software-defined Named Data Networking

In this paper, we introduce NDNFlow: an open-source software implementation of a Named Data Networking based forwarding scheme in OpenFlow-controlled Software-Defined Networks (SDNs). By setting up an application-specific communication channel and controller layer parallel to the application agnostic OpenFlow protocol, we obtain a mechanism to deploy specific optimizations into a network without requiring a full […]
