The traditional network needs to change the entire affected devices in order to maintain the flow. It was time consuming and many questions have been raised on the scalability and flexibility. Its quite difficult to manage the complex network and maintain pace with the increasing demands. Software Defined Network provides the architecture to manage the large complex networks. Open-flow protocol is used for separation of control plane and data plane. Here the centralized controller is used to decide the forwarding of packets. This paper represents the brief review of SDN. The advantages and limitations of SDN have been discussed. Various simulation tools with supporting experimental analysis is being enlightened.
