Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the forthcoming Special Issue on "Advances in High-Performance Switching and Routing".

This Special Issue is dedicated to showcasing cutting-edge research, highlighting the latest findings and addressing the ongoing challenges pertaining to high-performance switching and routing in next-generation networks and systems. In the face of escalating traffic demands, the imperative for high-performance switching and routing has never been greater. Effectively managing the burgeoning requirements for bandwidth and minimized latency in the realm of multimedia services and cloud computing applications, alongside the optimization of data center capabilities and enhancements in switching efficiency, underscores the critical challenges confronting today's digital landscape. As we navigate this terrain, achieving elevated energy efficiency in the realm of switching and routing equipment has emerged as an additional cornerstone in reshaping the future of the Internet.

The landscape of high-performance switching and routing is evolving rapidly, and this Special Issue seeks to capture the pulse of innovation in this dynamic field. We invite researchers, scholars, and practitioners to contribute their valuable insights to this discourse, fostering the development of smarter, more effective, and more resilient switching and routing capabilities.

Key topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative paradigms in high-performance switching and routing;
  • QoS (Quality of Service) enhancement strategies for next-generation networks;
  • Scaling data center architectures for enhanced switching capabilities;
  • Latency reduction techniques in multimedia and cloud environments;
  • Energy-efficient designs for switching and routing;
  • Novel algorithms for routing optimization in high-traffic scenarios.

We are privileged to have the honor of serving as Guest Editors for this Special Issue; we eagerly anticipate the diverse array of contributions that will enrich the conversation surrounding the advancement of high-performance switching and routing.

Today, the use of digital medicine is becoming more and more common in medicine. With the use of digital medicine, health data can be shared, processed, and visualized using computer algorithms. One of the problems currently facing digital medicine is the rapid transmission of large amounts of data and their appropriate visualization, even in 3D. Advances in technology offer the possibility to use new image processing, networking, and visualization solutions for the evaluation of medical samples. Because of the resolution of the samples, it is not uncommon that it takes a long time for them to be analyzed, processed, and shared. This is no different for 3D visualization. In order to be able to display digitalized medical samples in 3D at high resolution, a computer with computing power that is not necessarily available to doctors and researchers is needed. COVID-19 has shown that everyday work must continue even when there is a physical distance between the participants. Real-time network streaming can provide a solution to this, by creating a 3D environment that can be shared between doctors/researchers in which the sample being examined can be visualized. In order for this 3D environment to be available to everyone, it must also be usable on devices that do not have high computing capacity. Our goal was to design a general-purpose solution that would allow users to visualize large amounts of medical imaging data in 3D, regardless of the computational capacity of the device they are using. With the solution presented in this paper, our goal was to create a 3D environment for physicians and researchers to collaboratively evaluate 3D medical samples in an interdisciplinary way.

Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) is an ethernet-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) service that provides multipoint-to-multipoint Layer 2 VPN service, where each site is geographically dispersed across a Wide Area Network (WAN). The adaptability and scalability of VPLS are limited despite the fact that they provide a flexible solution for connecting geographically dispersed sites. Furthermore, the construction of tunnels connecting customer locations that are separated by great distances adds a substantial amount of latency to the user traffic transportation. To address these issues, a novel Hierarchical VPLS (H-VPLS) architecture has been developed using 802.1Q tunneling (also known as Q-in-Q) on high-speed and commodity routers to satisfy the additional requirements of new VPLS applications. The Vector Packet Processing (VPP) performs as the router’s data plane, and FRRouting (FRR), an open-source network routing software suite, acts as the router’s control plane. The router is designed to seamlessly forward VPLS packets using the Request For Comments (RFCs) 4762, 4446, 4447, 4448, and 4385 from The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) integrated with VPP. In addition, the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) is used for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Pseudo-Wire (PW) signaling in FRR. The proposed mechanism has been implemented on a software-based router in the Linux environment and tested for its functionality, signaling, and control plane processes. The router is also implemented on commodity hardware for testing the functionality of VPLS in the real world. Finally, the analysis of the results verifies the efficiency of the proposed mechanism in terms of throughput, latency, and packet loss ratio. Full article
