Abstract

In open reconfigurable architecture, the network devices realize the separation of the control plane and data plane. This paper study the control center of entire open reconfigurable network device: control element. It provides independent exclusive platform for control plane resources, which can enhance its scalability, control ability and efficiency significantly. The hierarchical structure of reconfigurable network and architecture of control element software are discussed. Then, core components of control element, which include protocol middleware and the development of user operating management system are introduced in details. Experiments of middleware software are illustrated for running routing protocols, network management, interface test etc. The experiment results show the feasibility of the control element design.
