Resource Allocation in Network Virtualization
Network virtualization plays a key role in the next-generation networking paradigm with enabling multiple tenants to share the same physical infrastructure. By leveraging the technologies of software-defined networking and network function virtualization, a platform with network virtualization provides virtualized resources of networking, computing, and functionality to users in a cost-effective and dynamic manner. While network virtualization brings a more flexible and efficient network, it makes network management more challenging. This talk addresses challenges of resource allocation in network virtualization, including basics and ongoing research topics.
