ABSTRACT
Software Defined Networking (SDN in short) is reshaping the future of computer networks. By decoupling control and data planes, SDN technologies allow a more flexible management of network infrastructures, whose resources may be operated by means of a well defined programming interface. Several approaches have been recently proposed to implement the SDN concept. OpenFlow is maybe the most prominent SDN component, having been supported by several device vendors. This paper discusses a practical experience in designing an OpenFlowcontroller for a Mobile Cloud Management system. We present the programming model and the designed abstraction and discuss the lesson learned.
