If you’re curious about SDN and would like to come up to speed quickly on the concepts, this half-hour video presentation by Scott Shenker can help:


The video's description puts it this way:

“Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has all the signs of a fad: massive hype in the trade rags, an increasing number of academic papers, and widespread confusion about what SDN really means (Isn't it just OpenFlow? Isn't it all about centralization? Isn't it all just hot air?). This talk will try to dispel some of this confusion by discussing how SDN arises from a few natural abstractions for the network control plane. Lecture given on June 6, 2012 at Technion.”
