According to industry people and research scholars, Software Defined Networking (SDN) is going to redefine networking and cloud world. This is the biggest thing that has happened in networking field in last 30 years. SDN is a New Way to Design, Build and Operate Networks. There is a Need to Innovate in the Network. We’ve seen tons of innovation in applications, devices, computing and storage, yet the underlying network that connects everything has remained unchanged. SDN Opens the Network Up for Innovation. It replaces static, inflexible and complex networks, with networks that are agile, scalable and innovative.
