AMPF: Application-aware Multipath Packet Forwarding using Machine Learning and SDN

Siva Sairam Prasad Kotaro Kataoka
Abstract: This paper proposes an application-aware multipath packet forwarding framework that integrates Machine Learning Techniques (MLT) and Software Defined Networks (SDN). As the Internet provides a variety of services and their performance requirement has become heterogeneous, it is common to come across the scenario of multiple flows competing for a constrained resource such as bandwidth, less jitter or low latency path. Such factors are application specific requirement that is beyond the knowledge of a simple combination of ...
