Software Defined Networking (SDN) empowers network operators with more flexibility to program their networks. SDN is the concept to break the traditional networks, where switch decides the action to be performed. SDN concept is based on defining a model where all switches move capacity of decision to a central element controller. A SDN/Openflow controller for networks is similar to an operating system of computer, which can control various task of network. In this paper we provide an overview
