Abstract / Description of output

Software Defined Networks (SDN) aim to deconstruct current routers into a small number of controllers, which are general purpose machines, and a large number of switches that contain programmable forwarding engines. The vision is that, instead of the ad-hoc mechanisms used in current routers, we can build programmable networks using proper computer science abstractions. This technology is now at the startup stage, and is being deployed in the data centres of large web service firms.
