Abstract
Software-defined Networking (SDN) is a key technology for network control, which is of significant interest to researchers and network operators. In August 2015 DRDC requested CRC’s participation in an international workshop specifically focusing on the capabilities of SDN in wireless networks. A CRC project was set up to investigate the capabilities and implications of SDN for DRDC, which will also help determine SDN’s suitability within CRC grand challenges. The TTCP workshop on SDN on November 3-6, 2015 allowed for the sharing of insights and strategies on using SDN in wireless networks with subject matter experts from the UK, US and Australia. The main outcomes of the workshop were a list of capabilities and requirements, a federated architecture, and the operational impact of using SDN in the tactical environment. SDN’s capabilities were evaluated from both a technical and operational point of view. The results of the workshop, including the specific opportunities and challenges of using SDN in tactical networks, provides direction for CRC and DRDC’s current and future R&D activities in wireless networks.
