Software-defined networking (SDN) offers numerous advantages to network operators and service providers, as well as data center providers. With SDN, the network infrastructure is more dynamic, programmable, and is capable of controlling the underlying infrastructure components. SDN has brought with it many benefits, such as reduced costs, better scalability, flexibility, manageability, and fine-grained control of traffic. This happens through programming the network forwarding behavior through the control plane interface using the controller.
The main objective of this Special Issue is to focus on the recent applications of SDN in the various domains of wired and wireless networks. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- SDN applications in network monitoring
- SDN applications in security services
- SDN applications in routing
- SDN applications in distributed application control
- SDN applications in resource management
- SDN applications in cloud networking
- SDN applications in the Internet of Things
- SDN applications in wireless sensor networks
