SDN and IPv6 Creates Buzz for Network Traffic Routing Protocols

FARMINGTON, Conn., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Tech executives and system administrators can't stop buzzing about software defined networking (SDN). Having redefined the archaic methods of manual configuration, the SDN approach to building computer networks provides for rapid provision connections in a mechanized fashion via separation and abstraction.


As the first standard communications interface defined between the controls and forwarding layers of SDN architecture, OpenFlow is a protocol that allows direct access and manipulation of the forwarding plane of network devices both physical and virtual. The beauty of OpenFlow is that it can define how traffic should flow through the network devices based on parameters such as usage patterns, applications and cloud resources. This way it provides extremely granular control, enabling the network to respond to real-time changes at the application and user-end.

"Software-defined Networking (SDN): Market Opportunities and Challenges", a new report by Mind Commerce Publishing evaluates SDN, OpenFlow protocol, and other related tools, procedures and mechanisms. The study also includes a full analysis of SDN versus other networking approaches, the impacts on existing vendors, and the future market potential for other approaches.
