Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a new paradigm for communication networks which separates the control plane from the data plane of forwarding elements. This way, SDN constitutes a flexible architecture that allows quick and easy configuration of network devices. OpenFlow is currently the most prominent approach which implements the SDN concept and offers a high flexibility in the routing of network flows.
