Software defined networking (SDN) is an evolutionary approach to network design and functionality based on the ability to modify the behavior of network devices via software program. Although still in its infancy, there is a great deal of optimism that SDN will make networks more fexible, dynamic, and cost-efficient, while greatly simplifying operational complexity. One underline technology for SDN is OpenFlow. OpenFlow is an open andard that gives a remote controller the power to modify the behavior of network devices such as routers, switches, virtual switches, and access points.
