Several simulation and emulation tools such as the OMNeT++ INET Framework and Mininet have been developed to evaluate the performance of Software-Defined Networking (SDN). A major challenge is how to analyze the obtained performance results of data transmission for these tools. These challenges include scaling to large networks, testing the correctness and evaluating the performance with the ability to easily migrate to a real system with minimal changes for deployment. Current methods for testing the functions and evaluating the performances of SDN include new programming languages, static analysis and debugging capability, and innovative frameworks of simulation tools.
