Abstract: Service Chaining provides opportunities for network and service providers to implement their services and policies with finer granularity of an individual user or an application. However, the increasing number of Service Chains and middleboxes will introduce a larger number of flow rules and more consumption of Ternary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM), whose capacity is limited due to high cost and power consumption. This paper proposes to compress the flow rules for service chaining by ...
