What is the Simplest and Easiest Way to Implement a Software Defined Network SDN Project

            Do you guys need the best explanation about the various methods of software defined network project implementation? Then, this article will guide you because we have enlisted the step by step processes that are required. Let’s start with the types of SDN implementation in the following.

Types of SDN Implementation

  • SDN via hypervisor based overlay network
  • Configuration of physical devices is unchanged
  • SDN via APIs
  • The functions of remote devices such as switches are invoked through the utilization of conventional methods such as CLI and SNMP over novel methods like Rest API
  • Open SDN
  • It is implemented through the utilization of OpenFlow switch and the controller communicates with the switches through using sound bound API with the help of OpenFlow protocol in open SDN

Requirements to Implement SDN Project

          Mininet is used to implement the Open SDN based SDN project in the easiest way and the implementation process includes some requirements such as,

  • Ubuntu – 14.04 LTS (32 bit)
  • Python – 2.7
  • Mininet – 2.0

Implementation of SDN Project

          The SDN project is implemented through the installation of Mininet in Ubuntu and then we have to create the configuration file along with the file extension .py. In addition, we have highlighted the sample code to make the switch and controller configuration in main file.

info( '*** Adding controller\n' )
info( '*** Add switches\n')
s5 = net.addSwitch('s5', cls=OVSKernelSwitch)

       Following that, we have to change the project location in the Ubuntu terminal through the implementation of the below mentioned commands.

sudo python main.py

         Finally, we have highlighted the result that is acquired through the execution of SDN project in the following image.
