A knowledge base is a web-based collection of material about some topic together with a search capability to discover information. The Search… box appears at the top of every screen in the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) knowledge base. The SDN knowledge base does not include a site map, but the titles of the articles available in the SDN knowledge base are listed in the column to the left and are as follows:

  • SDN Knowledge Base – this article describes the purpose of the SDN knowledge base, suggests how someone new to the SDN Knowledge Base might begin exploring it, and gives a brief history of how DREN started using SDN
  • Software-Defined Overview – this article begins by briefly contrasting SDN architecture deployments with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) deploymentis and then offers a high-level overview of numerous SDN and associated software architectures, providing references to more detailed material
  • Lessons Learned Collection – this article provides an organized collection of lessons learned materials from many sources plus supplemental information for those already using SDN or associated software architectures
  • Points of Contact – this article identifies some of the open source communities, standards development organizations, and software development associations engaged in developing, analyzing, standardizing or evaluating SDN or associated software architectures
  • Frequently Asked Questions – this article provides basic information about topics of interest to people new to SDN or associated software architectures
