Title: Software Defined Networks and OpenFlow: A survey
Keywords: Control plane, OpenFlow, SDN controller, SDN platforms

Abstract: In this paper, key features of SDN architecture such as network abstraction and open interfaces are presented and analyzed. A lot of researchers and manufacturers are involved in the process of developing a variety of solutions for these interfaces some of them already standardized. As a result, a number of SDN platforms exist. Their features are compared and some recommendations are also given. The most important feature of the SDN technology is concentrated in the control plane which defines the way how the network resources in the infrastructure layer are managed, based on the application requirements. This function is accomplished by the SDN controller and its Southbound interface. OpenFlow is one of the most popular protocol that provides a standard Southbound interface for data plane resources programming. The OpenFlow as well as its alternatives are also considered in this paper. The survey and analyses of SDN technology presented might be considered as a summary.
