Use of Open Hardware Platforms and Software Defined Software Testing Software

Description Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has emerged as a promising concept in designing new architectures for the Internet of the Future. The devices enabled for use in this new network architecture have been designed by hardware manufacturers as a closed system, in which designers become dependent on the implementation of these manufacturers, which disfigures the initial proposal of the SDN architecture. The purpose of this project is to investigate the use of non-specialized, off-the-shelf equipment that allows the installation of open source network operating systems to enable SDN experimentation. The intention is to demonstrate the feasibility of enabling innovation in this area through the use of the SDN architecture in these equipments making the researchers of the area free of the closed implementations of network software offered by the current manufacturers of network hardware. Based on the results to be obtained by this project, contributions can be made and new proposals can be presented to the academic community and the market, in such a way as to contribute with the state of the art of scientific research in the area.
