A Comprehensive Introduction to SDN Architectural Foundations and Applications

Dr. Yogita Hande | Dr. Rupali Vairagade


Abstract: It is Software defined networking (SDN) is a new network approach which allows separation of the forwarding plane from the control plane in network architecture, that aids in the efficient control of data flow and gives network administrators a software-based method for managing and configuring the networks. In contrast to SDN, which provides a centralized controller, traditional network topologies require the individual configuration of each network device. Due to a centralized control functionality, SDN is increasingly used by businesses, telecom service providers, cloud providers, and many other users, as it encourages flexibility and scalability in the network while also assisting in streamlining operations. There is significant demand of SDN for effective and adaptable networks. SDN adoption has also been rising in the campuses and corporate sectors. This paper provides a concise overview of the Software Defined Networks (SDN) topic, which is essential for comprehending the fundamental principles of SDN in order to conduct research and implement SDN in many sectors. The initial focus is on the discussion of traditional networks, including their limitations, as well as the many issues encountered by industries. The topic of Software Defined Networks is explored, encompassing their necessity, historical background, architectural structure, interfaces, and models. Next, the many applications of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) are examined. Additionally, the various SDN case studies, vendors, setup issues with SDN, and current research fields were elucidated. The discussion focuses on the role of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in Artificial Intelligence (AI), specifically addressing the issues associated with implementing SDN in AI.
