Dynamic Resource Migration in Virtualized Networks by Using Reinforcement Learning

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In network environments where multiple virtual network operators (VNOs) create VNs over common edge, core, and datacenter networks, the physical resources should be dynamically and agilely reallocated and migrated among VNs in various situations, such as to construct a new urgent VN in case of occurrence of some urgent contingency, or to satisfy quality of service (QoS) requirements of non-urgent VNs in case of time-varying network traffic conditions as much as possible. In this paper, we propose methods to automatically and dynamically select and migrate resources of non-urgent VNs after preferentially allocating necessary resources to the urgent VN. In particular, our proposal applies reinforcement learning for selection of resources from alternate places to satisfy the QoS requirements. Simulation results show that the proposed dynamic resource migration method can make it easier to satisfy non-urgent VNs’ QoS requirements compared to static resource assignment methods. Moreover, we show that, applying reinforcement learning can increase the number of times QoS requirements are satisfied for VNs in comparison with the dynamic method with completely random resource selection.
