- Software Defined Networking (SDN) separates the control plane from the data plane within the network, allowing the intelligence and state of the network to be managed centrally while abstracting the complexity of the underlying physical network. Among the three layers architecture of SDN, the southbound interface is very important since it is used for connecting the control layer and the infrastructure layer. The OpenFlow protocol is the first standard communication interface defined as a southbound interface. This article introduces the new features of the latest version of OpenFlow released on Oct. 15, 2013, and discusses the possible applications that can benefit from these new features.
