IEEE Seminar on "Software Defined Networks" 18th November 2015

Centre of Computer Education, Institute of Professional Studies has organized a day-long Seminar on the topic "Software Defined Networking" on November 18, 2015. The speaker Dr. Mayank Pandey from MNNIT Allahabad apprised the audience about Software Defined Networking

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a networking paradigm that promises to enable network programmability and simplifies networking management as well. The basic concept of SDN is the decoupling of the data plane and the control plane, which exists together in the traditional networking elements. The control plane is programmable and is controlled by the network operators and the administrators. This gives them the power to change the networking policies and control over all the traffic flows. This is possible due to the fact that SDN hands over the control and policy functions of different networking devices to a single or multiple servers known as the controller. Besides the network abstraction, the SDN architecture provides a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that simplifies the implementation of common network services (like routing, multicast, security, access control, bandwidth management, traffic engineering, energy efficiency and various forms of policy management). In SDN, the network intelligence is logically centralized in software-based controllers (at the control plane), and network devices become the simple packet forwarding devices (the data plane) that can be programmed via an open interface. One of the early implementations of this open interface is called OpenFlow.

The programme was attended by 140 participants from the University and Technical Institutions around Allahabad. The programme ended by the distribution of certificates to the participants
