The software defined networking has opened new opportunities for offering network resources to end users “as a service”. For these purposes a number of technologies have been proposed and implemented to enable easy definition and management of network resources dynamically. In this paper we provide an overview of software defined network and technologies used for identifying network topology. We present three approaches based on Dijkstra’s Shortest Path Algorithm and evaluate their performance in an experimental study.
