Software-defined networking (SDN), OpenFlow, & OpenStack

Software-defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • About the integration between SDN, OpenFlow, and OpenStack.
  • How SDN is essential for cloud networking and how OpenStack utilizes it.
  • Various components of SDN and how they interact with each other.
