Title: TECHNIQUE FOR PACKET BUFFERING
Abstract:
A technique for buffering packets in a Software Defined Networking (SDN) infrastructure is disclosed. A method implementation of the technique is performed by an SDN network device and comprises receiving (S304) a configuration message from an SDN controller, the configuration message defining at least one characteristic characterizing packets to be buffered, receiving (S306) a packet, triggering (S308) inserting the packet into a buffer if the packet matches the at least one characteristic, and triggering (S310) sending a notification message to the SDN controller notifying the SDN controller that the packet is inserted into the buffer.
