A new network paradigm of software-defined networks (SDNs) is being widely adapted to efficiently monitor and manage the communication networks with a global perspective. SDN has a key networking feature that separates control and data plane. Today, due to its inherent benefits, SDN has been widely applied to various networking domains, including data centers, 5G Access and Core network functions, wide area network (WAN), enterprise, optical networks, underwater sensor networks (UWSNs), energy Internet (EI), and smart grid (SG).
