Activities of 2019

One of my journal papers reaches 800 reads in ResearchGate!

This paper entitled “Near-Optimal Routing Protection for In-Band Software-Defined Heterogeneous Networks“, which was published by IEEE JSAC in 2016, studies the dynamic routing scheduling for the in-band controller-to-switch control channels of SDN. We proposed a near-optimal performance-guaranteed scheduling algorithm.
