Software Defined Networking (SDN)

What is Software Defined Networking (SDN)?

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a method of network management allowing network administrators to control and manage network resources through software. Traditionally in network architecturs,  network control and data forwarding functionality are integrated into networking devices like switches and routers.

SDNs also allows network admins to program and customize the network through software. This provides great flexibility and adaptability. It also allows for easy network automation by allowing administrators to automate tasks and respond to changes in network conditions more effectively.

SDNs are widely used in data centers, large campus networks, and telecommunication environments creating a more efficient and scalable infrastructure. It is essential technology in the realm of modern networking and provides the foundation for innovation in network management services.
