This proposal addresses two problems in programmable networks. Specifically, we are interested in networks that can dynamically deploy applications and session-specific plugins within network routers, to provide advanced commination services. In the first half of the proposal, we present a general approach to the problem of configuring application sessions that require intermediate processing in programmable networks. In the second half, we discuss how to provision a programmable network for such session by placing and dimensioning link bandwidth and processing resources in an efficient way.
