The network is the backbone of information technology services. Therefore, controlling, monitoring, and improving the network is an important part of the network administrator’s job. The emergence of Software Defined Networking (SDN) has augmented the networking infrastructure. Basically, SDN refers to the use of open protocols to allow access to network switches and routers as opposed to using closed or proprietary protocols. SDN is an umbrella term used for several networking technologies. Deployed in data centers, SDN is aimed at creating a more agile and scalable network. Traffic loads and data transmission continue to grow rapidly in numbers, demanding a leaner, more stable and seamless networking infrastructure.
