This letter proposes a new Hybrid Software Defined Network (HSDN) platform for the interoperation with legacy routing protocol to support hardware level network virtualization for multi-tenant environment. By considering current SDN issues in the production network, the proposed platform contributes to solve these issues at reasonable overhead. Our testbed shows that failure convergence time with the proposed platform is almost same as legacy routing protocol. On the other hand, it also shows that hardware level virtualization is supported with stable ICMP response times.
