Software-defined network (SDN) is a new programmable networking designed to perform tasks easier by enabling network administrators to add network control via a centralized control platform and open interfaces. Common network use procedures such as traffic shifts, troubleshooting and various types of device configuration. Thus devices are needed to reconfigure with the network, in order to create a reaction with events. In this paper, we have developed an SDN testbed using Zodiac FX a hardware

Ryu controller is configured for testbed development. The main contribution of this paper in threefold as follows: first it provides the configuration of Ryu controller, second, it provides the configuration of Zodiac FX switch and lastly it develops a simple SDN testbed for OpenFlow.
