Optimize the network topology discovery service in SDNHeuristics algorithmsNetwork Modeling and OptimizationTopology Discovery AlgorithmsSoftware-Defined Networking (SDN)
My current research is based on conceiving and designing more efficient heuristic algorithms, in order to improve the existing techniques of the network topology discovery. In current networks, the topology discovery problem for an incomplete data input is an NP-hard problem. In that direction, the main objective is to find an algorithm to be implemented in a novel Topology Discovery Protocol. This protocol will be applied on Software Defined Networks (SDN), providing the network with the ability to discover network devices automatically. SDN is a recent paradigm that has allowed researchers to innovate and develop over the network in a more simple way.
