Managing a tera of networking flows using Erlang | Sébastien Merle & Peer Stritzinger

As part of the 2021 TeraFlow research group, we are developing a distributed Software-Defined Network (SDN) controller targeting a tera of managed flows in beyond 5G networks.

After an overview of what an SDN controller is and the protocols involved, we will introduce our architecture, the concerns, constraints, and challenges. Then we will perform a live demo showing the progress so far. Finally, we will present the open-source projects created or improved as part of the development.


Give the audience a good idea of what is a Software-Defined Network (SDN) controller, and some of the challenges of developing a scalable one.
