Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to network virtualization software-based controllers/application programming interfaces (APIs), which control traffic on the network and communicate with the underlying hardware infrastructure. Enterprise SDN is a three-layer architecture that includes application layer, control layer, and infrastructure. The communication between three SDN layers uses southbound and northbound program interfaces, where the southbound application interface communicates between the control and application layers, and the northbound interface communicates between the control and infrastructure layers. Typically, the purpose of SDN is to allow operators to virtualize their hardware, which will enable operators to control the allocation of resources at a virtual level through the control plane.
