Abstract
Currently, there are many ways to save energy for the switch such as change the operating modes to low power modes: SLEEP PORT and SLEEP SWITCH when there is no traffic flowing through the Ethernet ports. The switch will be waked up to normal modes when traffic flows pass through it. However, the changes of the modes of the OpenFlow Switch will create DELAY-TIME. If we know DELAY-TIME, then we will make routing algorithms and get appropriately mechanisms to ensure no impact on the transmission of data and loss packets. In this paper, we propose a remedy to measure and evaluate DELAY-TIME when we use the Wakeup On Lan (WOL) method for OpenFlow switch based on NetFPGA platform.
