Software-defined networking (SDN) promises to bring radical improvements in both cost and functionality to the networking field. At the same time, SDN poses many fundamental questions, including deep architectural issues such as whether control should be centralized or distributed, and whether control and data planes should be separated or share fate. The Software Defined Networking Research Group has been formed to facilitate research into these and other foundational questions.
