Experiences with MPTCP in an International OpenFlow Network

Tue, 3 Sep 2013
Keeping up with the network demand in order to transfer these data sets over the Internet is a challenge. Single links do not have enough capacity anymore. Therefore we need to install more interfaces in the servers and use all available paths in the network. In this paper we describe two new technologies that help to optimally use the capacity of all multiple paths simultaneously: OpenFlow and Multipath TCP (MPTCP).
