摘要:

【背景】 软件定义广域网(SD-WAN)可有效解决传统的企业级广域网成本贵、部署难的问题,但目前用户在使用SD-WAN时面临着运营商锁定的问题,在一定程度上制约了SD-WAN的发展。 【目的】 为SD-WAN提供平台化的接入调度与自动化的结算方案,解除用户面临的运营商锁定问题。 【方法 】通过SD-WAN与区块链技术相结合,本文提出了基于区块链的SD-WAN业务系统,利用联盟链框架,针对认证授权、流量调度、结算监管等流程进行了设计,并通过改进的共识算法增强系统的吞吐量。通过本系统,用户能够提出个性化的广域网服务需求,由系统在用户与不同的运营商间进行自动化的、不可篡改的流量调度与结算,当运营商发生违约时,用户流量可在运营商间自动切换。 【结论】 本系统有效解决了SD-WAN运营商锁定的问题,区块链在网络运营方面体现出了巨大的应用潜力。

Abstract:

[Background] Software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) can effectively solve the problems of expensive and difficult deployment of traditional enterprise-level WAN. However, the network provider lock-in problem restricts SD-WAN to a certain extent for user development. [Objective] The purpose of the research is to provide a platform-based access scheduling and automated settlement solution for SD-WAN, and to release the lock-in problem faced by users. [Methods] This paper proposes a blockchain-based SD-WAN business system, which uses the alliance chain framework to design authentication, authorization, traffic scheduling, settlement supervision and other processes. Moreover, the throughput of the system can be enhanced through improved consensus algorithms. [Results] On this system, users can customize WAN services that shift between different operators automatically with non-tamperable traffic scheduling and settlement. [Conclusions] This system solves the lock-in problem of SD-WAN effectively, and the blockchain technology shows great application potential in network operation.
