This course introduces software defined networking, an emerging paradigm in computer networking that allows a logically centralized software program to control the behavior of an entire network.  

Separating a network's control logic from the underlying physical routers and switches that forward traffic allows network operators to write high-level control programs that specify the behavior of an entire network, in contrast to conventional networks, whereby network operators must codify functionality in terms of low-level device configuration.  

Logically centralized network control makes it possible for operators to specify more complex tasks that involve integrating many disjoint network functions (e.g., security, resource control, prioritization) into a single control framework, allowing network operators to create more sophisticated policies, and making network configurations easier to configure, manage, troubleshoot, and debug. 



The course will tentatively have the following modules:

1.  The history of software defined networking

a.  1980s: AT&T's Network Control Point

b.  1990s: Cambridge's Tempest Project

c.  2000s:

IETF's FORCES Working Group

AT&T's Routing Control Platform

4D and Ethane

2.  Data-Plane Support for SDN

a.  Software Routers: Click and Quagga

b.  Programmable Hardware: NetFPGA (and follow-ons)

3.  Control-Plane Support for SDN

a.  Controllers: NOX, Onix, Floodlight

b.  Programming languages: Frenetic, Procera

4.  Application of SDN to Domains

a.  Data Center Networking

b.  Wireless Networking and Software Defined Radio

c.  Enterprise and Campus Networks

d.  Transit Networks
