Abstract

As experimenting with energy-aware techniques on large-scale production infrastructure is prohibitive, several traffic-engineering strategies have been evaluated using discrete-event simulation. The present work discusses (i) challenges towards building testbeds that allow researchers and practitioners to validate and evaluate the performance of energy-aware traffic-engineering strategies and (ii) requirements when porting simulations to testbeds. We discuss a proof-of-concept platform and an application that use and provide Software-Defined Network (SDN) services created on the Open Network Operating System (ONOS) to validate previously proposed energy-aware traffic engineering strategies. We detail the platform and illustrate how it has been used for performance evaluation.
