This paper presents an analysis of requirements to Software Defined Network (SDN) Controllers (SDNC), from the point of view of the Telco’s Next Generation Platform as a Service (NGPaaS) functional and architectural needs. Numerous requirements have been identified, which can be grouped in 4 categories: domain-based, modularity-based, related to the SDN and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) integration and finally policy-based. These requirements are later mapped into the ONOS SDN controller, with the scope of identifying possible gaps and points of improvement.
