Claim is for an outsourced control plane for routing which is backward
compatible with BGP. Idea is that any “significant sized” networks
outsource routing to a contractor specialising in this.
Outsourcing party exports to contractor the following:
Policies, either directly or derived from SLAs.
Topologies and measurement data (jitter, load etc)

The central suggestion is that centrally controlled SDN networks are
in a position to choose which version of TCP will work best. OpenTCP
tunes TCP for traffic and network conditions. Different TCP flavours
perform better at different times or in different conditions e.g.
datacentre TCP (DCTCP).

Paper advocates decoupling of network architecture from network
infrastructure – Software Defined Internet Architecture (SDIA).
Problem is to allow new architectures without falling back to a
“clean slate” deployment.
current IP protocol or any… convention on how packets

Open Radio is a design for a programmable wireless dataplane. Wireless
protocols evolve quickly and infrastructure for wireless must support
this. Protocol changes are continuous but many basestations deployed.
OpenRadio exposes an interface to program PHY and MAC layers.
