Abstract

Packet assembly at the network edge is one solution to reduce high packet rates in core network switches. Literature discusses this topic controversially because of three reasons: (1) potential negative impact of packet assembly on the traffic characteristics, (2) disruptive integration into existing networks and (3) lack of support of packet assembly in existing control plane environment.
