Since a single OFC can collaboratively work with all OFSs and can totally manage all flows through the connected OFSs, the OFC has a potential to dynamically manage flows in response to the variations of the traffic condition in whole WBN.
The OFC initially registers flow entries (base entry) to all OFSs when establishing a control TCP connection with each OFS.
To enable OpenFlow based control, all OFSs (APs) directly connect to an OFC by using dedicated wired network to establish a control connection with the OFC.
To carry the control messages between an OFC and OFSs, the IP reachability between an OFC and OFSs have to be guaranteed in advance.
* Create an Office of Federal Shared Services (OFSS).
* If the politics allow it, legislation should be proposed to divest existing SSOs from their hosts in programmatic agencies and consolidate them into OFSS. Transferring SSOs into OFSS would be controversial because it would be perceived as disruptive to current agency operations and the congressional committee structure; however, freeing government SSOs from host agencies where funding, staffing levels, culture, and career ladders are dominated by programmatic missions is necessary to accelerate their evolution.
The plan should establish an OFSS customer board of directors to supervise shared services transformation at the government-wide policy level and operational-level customer boards for each SSO.
