Zodiac-FX Switch OpenFlow Throughput
The Zodiac FX from Northbound Networks is an OpenFlow switch designed to deliver the power of Software Defined Networking to researchers, students, and anyone who wants to develop their SDN skills or build applications using real hardware. In a previous post, I described the process of connecting the Zodiac FX switch with a Raspberry Pi (single-board computer) that ...

SDN with Raspberry Pi and Zodiac FX

SDN with Raspberry Pi and Zodiac FX
Experimenting with Software Defined Networks (SDN) on real hardware has become a lot easier since I discovered the Zodiac FX switch from Northbound Networks. This 4-port switch supports Openflow v1.0 and v1.3, and it supports many Openflow controllers. This post describes the process of connecting the Zodiac FX switch with a Raspberry Pi, which runs ...

What is SDN?

What is SDN?
Software Defined Networks (SDN) is a new technology with a lot of potential and a healthy dose of hype. The main premise of SDN is moving the intelligence of the network from distributed network nodes to a centralized location to enable programmability and flexibility of configuration through software applications. Each router in today’s communication networks ...
