Abstract

The use cases of the upcoming 5G mobile networks introduce new and complex user demands that will require support for fast reconfiguration of network resources. Software Defined Network (SDN) is a key technology that can address these requirements, as it decouples the control plane from the data plane of the network devices and logically centralizes the control plane in the SDN controller. SDN network operating system (ONOS) is a state-of-art SDN controller that aims to address this important scalability limitation from its design. An important feature of ONOS is that it allows network administrators to configure and manage networks with a high-level of abstraction by using Intent specifications. An Intent is a policy expression describing what is the desired outcome rather than how the outcome should be reached. The concept of Intents coupled with the distributed storage space are the key components for the theoretical scalability of ONOS. In this paper, we present our evaluation of the ONOS Intent northbound
interface using a methodology that takes into consideration the interface access method, type of Intent and number of installed Intents. Our preliminary analysis indicates a linear increase in the computational cost with regards to the number of submitted Intents, with the access method being a major factor in the overall computational cost.
