SDN Ground Truth: Implementing a Massive Scale Programmable DOCSIS Network (2016)

By Sameer Patel, Mohammad Kabir Chowdhury, Comcast, and Jason Schnitzer, Dr. David Early, Applied Broadband

SDN carries the promise of enhanced and expanded services with a more manageable operational environment. Though many standards groups and open source projects exist, deployments remain in their infancy. This paper provides an overview of Comcast’s SDN-driven implementation of programmable Service Flows through the integration of the OpenDaylight PacketCable Multimedia plugin. This paper also provides practical considerations for successful analysis of SDN architectures and technologies when applied to DOCSIS Broadband network deployments.
