Software Defined Networking System Overview
Today is observed the extremely active growth in the bandwidth-intensive applications and permanent demand for speed, scalability, and resilience. The traditional networks and data centers are on the limit of their possibilities.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a new powerful concept for decision these problems. SDN proposes to disaggregate the traditional networking stacks that are vertically integrated to customize the network operations for specialized environments and improve network service velocity.
SDN is a special approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services via the abstraction of functionality of the lower level. It is realized by separating the control plane from the data plane.
SDN is an important step in the evolution to the programmable and active networking. With SDN the network administrators have the programmable central control of the network traffic through the controller, without the physical access to the network's switches. Many networks use switches for sending, receiving and directing data over the network.
The networks with SDN allow to network administrators quickly respond on the changing of business requirements. The traffic can be formed from a centralized control console, there is no need to go out to another building to reconfigure switches individually.
The first supporters of SDN were OpenFlow, OpenDaylight, Brocade. The main application of SDN is the infrastructure as a service (IaaS), it is also used in the consolidated data-center, in traditional and geo-distributed campus networks.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software. It provides the Computer and Networks Area with many Solutions that contain the wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils, templates and samples to help you design the professional looking Software-Defined Networking (SDN) diagrams of any complexity quick and easy.
Example 1. Software Defined Networking System Overview
On this example you can see the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) diagram that was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The network diagrams designed with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, and converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio).

TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
The vector stencils libraries: Block Diagrams, Blocks with Perspective, Callouts, Connectors, Raised Blocks from the solution Block Diagrams contain specific block diagram symbols such as arrows, input/output symbols, start/end symbols, processing symbols, conditional symbols, commenting symbols, callouts, connectors, etc. for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software. The Block Diagrams solution is contained in a "Diagrams" area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Use the libraries from the Block Diagrams solution to draw block diagrams for your business documents, presentations and websites in a few minutes.

Network Topology in communication networks, a topology is a usually schematic description of the arrangement of a network, including its nodes and connecting lines. There are two ways of defining network geometry: the physical topology and the logical topology.
Network Topology Mapper offers extensive drawing tools professional-looking network diagrams quickly and easily allowing you to clearly represent and communicate network architecture, topology, and design to engineers, stakeholders and end-users.

Physical network represents the computer network topology that includes the computer devices, location and cable installation. Physical network includes the actual nodes, segments and hosts.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Physical star network.

The reliability is a cornerstone for any corporate computer network. If you want to provide a high fault tolerance, a mesh network topology would be the solution. The main advantage of this network is that every node can work as a commutator, although it’s not easy to set up this kind of network.
A mesh network topology may be full, or partial. Full mesh network means that each node of the network (computer, workstation or other equipment) is connected directly to each of the other nodes. A partial mesh topology means that a part of nodes are connected with a whole network, and the other part of nodes are only connected to those equipment, they exchange the majority of data. This illustration shows schematic diagram of a partial mesh network containing six nodes. Each node is represented as a circles and connections are drawn as straight lines. The connections may be both wired and wireless. This scheme can be used to make the specific logical or physical network diagrams by means the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.

This method of problem analysis is widely used in IT, manufacture industries and chemical engineering. If you want to take a fresh look on your problem, you can draw a fishbone diagram with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software, which supports both MAC OS and Windows. You can see and download fishbone diagram samples and templates in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This Fishbone (Ishikawa) diagram can be applied as template for performing the cause and effect analysis of a service industry problems. It can help to determine factors causing problems. Causes in this diagram are categorized according to the 4S’s principle that means Surroundings, Suppliers, Systems and Skills. Grouping causes allows to reveal main interactions between different events. This diagram was made using ConceptDraw Fishbone diagrams solution. It can help to reveal the causes effected a complicated issue. Of course it can be used together with other methods of approaching to the problem solving.
