An RNS-Based Forwarding Approach To Implement SFC

  • Hu Z.
  • Zhao M.

Because of the more and more diversified service, SFC needs to be dynamically and feasibly implemented. Thanks to NFV and SDN ideas, the new SFC architecture is defined to meet the requirements in the IETF. Based on the OpenFlow, the approach of the single flow table is used to implement SFC, but it is inefficient. As the number of service chains increases, the flow entries in the flow table increase dramatically. Looking up and matching such a large flow table in the switch can lead to time delay, and it also makes it more difficult to update the forwarding path. Then, the multiple flow tables approach is proposed to improve the efficient for SFC. But it involves the algorithm complexity of mapping and maintaining the multiple flow tables, VLAN IDs and port numbers. In this paper we propose an RNS based forwarding approach to improve SFC implementation, which is a simpler solution with higher efficiency and lower latency.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
