Abstract
In OpenFlow, a network as a whole can be controlled from one or more external entities (controllers) using in-band or out-of-band control networks. In this article, we propose in-band control, queuing, and failure recovery functionalities for OpenFlow. In addition, we report experimental studies and practical challenges for implementing these functionalities in existing software packages containing different versions of OpenFlow. The experimental results show that the in-band control functionality is suitable for all types of topologies. The results with the queuing functionality show that control traffic can be served with the highest priority in in-band networks and hence, data traffic cannot affect the communication between the controller and networking devices. The results with the failure recovery functionality show that traffic can be recovered from failures within 50 ms.
