Abstract

Nowadays the research community is rethinking the Internet architecture to cope with its limitations and to support new requirements. Researches on network virtualization and network function virtualization show these technologies could be the key for these issues. SDN and NFV enable the network softwarization and the routing function virtualization, providing the routing resources dynamically, according to the demand, making the network even more flexible. Thus, network architecture that allows the management of physical resources, through a network aware of all the services and resources, considering their availability based on noninvasive monitoring is required. The hypervisor is an element of this architecture that enables multiple network operating systems (NOS) running over a given physical SDN network infrastructure. In this scenario there are still many challenges for the creation of an architecture that enables replacing the traditional networks currently in operation. This research aims to survey aspects involved in the network architecture that meets the virtualization requirements of the routing function for an edge solution that integrates multidomain and multitechnology.
