Abstract

Computer networks are dynamic and require constant updating and monitoring of operations to meet the growing volume of data trafficked. This generates a number of cost issues as well as performance management and tuning to deliver granular quality of service (QoS), balancing data load, and controlling the occurrence of bottlenecks. As an alternative, a new programmable network paradigm has been used under the name of Software Defined Networks (SDN). The SDN consists of decoupling the data plane and controlling the network, where a programmable controller is responsible for managing rules for routing the data to various devices. Thus, the hardware that remains in the network data stream simply addresses the routing of the packets quickly according to these rules. In this context, this article conducts a study on different methods and approaches that are being used in the literature to solve problems in the optimization of data traffic in the network through the use of SDN. In particular, this study differs from other reviews of SDN because it focuses on issues such as QoS, load balancing, and congestion control. Finally, in addition to the review of the SDN's state-of-the-art in the areas mentioned, a survey of future challenges and research opportunities in the area is also presented. load balancing and congestion control.
