There is increasing interest in the deployment and utilization of SDN for transport networks. SDN allows network administrators to better manage networks through abstraction of lower level functionality into a centralized network view, which is decoupling the system that makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane) from the system that sends traffic to its final destination (the data plane).
