In this white paper, we introduce Hierarchical SDN (HSDN), an architectural solution that enables hyperscaling through surprisingly small forwarding tables in network nodes. HSDN introduces a new paradigm for the forwarding and control plane, where all paths in the network are preset in the forwarding table, and labels identify the entire path and not just the destination. These properties of HSDN greatly simplify the construction of tunnels, enabling ECMP and any-to-any end-to-end TE best-case, which in turn results in extremely high network utilization with small buffers in switches. Pre-established tunnels make HSDN the ideal underlying infrastructure for seamless and lossless VM and VNF overlay mobility and excellent resiliency.
