The existing networking devices (switches) are complex because they have control plane and data forwarding plane interwined in same devices. This affects the network performance in terms of delayed delivery and repeated functionality. The proposed network software system gives the technique to separate control functionality from the forwarding functionality from such devices which results in efficient network communication. OpenFlow, one of the techniques of software defined network technology, is a new approach to networking and its key attribute is: separation of data and control planes.
