Our activities with Huawei.
- Huawei PhD CIFRE grant on the topic “Scalable Online Algorithms for SDN controllers” (June 2016 – May 2019)
Participants : Zaid Allybokus, Konstantin Avrachenkov.
Collaborators: Jérémie Leguay and Lorenzo Maggi
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies have radically transformed network architectures. They provide programmable data planes that can be configured from a remote controller platform.
The objective of this CIFRE thesis is to provide fundamental answers on how powerful SDN controller platforms could solve large online flow problems to optimize networks in real-time and in a distributed or semi-distributed fashion. We use methods from both optimization and dynamic programming.
