Social networking for Smart Grid users

Emerging smart grids have promising potentials to make energy management more efficient than currently possible in today’s power grids. Integration of small scale renewables, distributed charging of electrical vehicles and virtual power stations are some of the technological innovations made possible by smart grids. Besides these technological aspects, smart grids also have a clear social component: consumers and small producers can […]

An extended SDN architecture for network function virtualization with a case study on intrusion prevention

In conventional software-defined networking (SDN), a controller classifies the traffic redirected from a switch to determine the path to network function virtualization (NFV) modules. The redirection generates a large volume of control-plane traffic. We propose an extended SDN architecture to reduce the traffic overhead to the controller for providing NFV. The extension includes two-layer traffic classification […]
