Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enables fast reconfiguration of the network based on the decisions of a logically centralized controller. While SDN is in transition from laboratories and greenfield data-centers to enterprise networks, the need for managing partial SDN deployments arises. This incremental deployment of SDN has its own set of challenges, for example the design of the mixed control plane or the integration in existing network management systems.
