Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Software-Defined Networking Solutions Overview
What are Software-Defined Networking Solutions?Software-Defined Networking Solutions (SDN) are strongly related to, and frequently confused with, two other network agility technologies: Network Virtualization (NV) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
Software-defined networking solves the problem of rapid network architecture design to handle very large traffic flows. Traditionally, in order to shape traffic, administrators would have to configure individual switches.
SDN makes it possible to manage network traffic from a central console without having to deal with the hardware at all. This is achieved by decoupling the system that makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane) from the systems that forward traffic to the correct destination (the data plane).
