 Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a technology and architectural approach that is continuing to form and mature.  The development of SDN has largely spawned from the need to separate Control and Data planes as a means of optimizing networks via software control and reduced dependency on specific hardware configurations and vendors. 
   
 A major goal of SDN is to both simplify and consolidate network functions, replacing specialized hardware with commodity switches, servers, etc.  It enables vertical integration with application control over the network through SDN APIs.  SDN solutions currently depend on the use of the OpenFlow protocol, which structures communication between the Control and Data planes of supported network devices via Southbound APIs and...
