Abstract
Abstract This paper proposes an auto-configuration mechanism for a newly attached SDN (Software-defined Networking) switch and intermediate switches in an SDN/non-SDN hybrid network. Automation of initial configuration of SDN switches brings the benefit of reducing the installation costs and maintaining the operational consistency in an enterprise network. However, the heterogeneity of a hybrid network introduces difficulty in achieving such benefits. The proposed system achieves the following features: 1) detecting a new SDN ...
