The demand of Network Virtualization and Cloud computing is rapidly increasing day by day. The Software Defined Networking with the Openflow protocol mainly used in the network topology. In traditional networking system, due to the lack of bandwidth we cant access the services properly. However, the bandwidth and latency of the nodes are major problems. The efficiency and performance of the nodes are not utilized properly in the traditional system.

Till now, there is very small quantitative work is done on the measurement of the latency and bandwidth using the Openflow. So, this topic is selected for my thesis work. Here we will calculate the bandwidth and latency using Openflow. This will also help us to enable the dynamic path between the nodes. The experiment will tell about how to utilise the bandwidth in the data centres.

The experiment has been done by implementing the fat tree topology using the Openflow. In the first part, the allocation of Host (nodes) and open v switches in the topology by using the Openflow protocol. And in the second part the measuring of the bandwidth and latency with the help of the Iperf and Mininet tools. Analysis of the results tells that, with Openflow we can utilise the bandwidth more efficiently. And also it is observed that the dynamically allocation of nodes can be created by using Openflow. These results tell about the implementation of Openflow in the data centres can minimise the bandwidth and latency between the nodes.
