Network virtualization

What is network virtualization?

Virtualization of computers started in 1960s, and recently, virtual machines (VM) had been widely used and storage had also been virtualized. Networks in data centers is being virtualized, but there are still many research problems to be solved. In particular, we can develop virtual networks that has programmability in the network nodes, and we can enable various kinds of experimental researches to overcome the barrier of the Internet.

Papers on network virtualization are available here. In addition exhibits information on Interop Tokyo 2010 is available.

This research investigates network programmability, so we can say it succeeds researches on Active Networks.

Keywords: Network virtualization, Virtualization network, Virtual network, Virtualization node
