Software-Defined Network (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is adaptable, manageable and cost-effective. It's ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. This architecture decouples the network control and its enabling functions to become directly programmable. The underlying infrastructure can also be abstracted for various applications and network services.
SDN allows network managers to configure, manage, secure and optimize network resources very quickly via dynamic, automated SDN programs. These programs do not depend on proprietary software and you can easily write them yourself.
When implemented through open standards, SDN simplifies network design and operations since instructions are provided by SDN controllers instead of multiple, vendor-specific devices and protocols.
