Software Defined Networking is a new model for managing and controlling networks that emerged from the need to make the network more agile in virtualized datacentre environments. Given the short time of the presentation I will present the concept of SDN (and OpenFlow, the main underlying protocol), by analogy to traditional networking, highlighting the main advantages (centralized control, hence full/better control of the network), yet point out potential caveats (scalability issues, limitations in hardware deployments).
