Software Defined Networking (SDN) and OpenFlow have emerged as a new paradigm of networking. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is changing how we design, build, and operate networks to achieve business agility. With SDN, networks are no longer closed, proprietary, and difficult to program. They are transformed into an open and programmable component of the larger cloud infrastructure. SDN gives network owners and operators more control of their infrastructure, allowing customization and optimization, and reducing the overall capital and operational costs. SDN also allows service providers to create new revenue opportunities at an accelerated pace through the creation of software-based applications –as the PC, mobile, and Web industries have been doing successfully for years.
