One of the most important achievements of Software-Defined Networking is a possibility to redefine existing invariants in network management, This talk covers three important aspects of data path provision: (1) what should be flexible at the network element level to express various economic models and how different characteristics impact desired objective functions?; (2) how to represent this expressiveness efficiently on data plane; and 3) new abstractions that allow to integrate services from heterogeneous controllers without standardization of Northbound API.
