Video: Out-of-Band SDN Management Network

One of the challenges of designing a controller-based solution is the transport network used to exchange information between controller and controlled devices. Can you do that in-band or is it better to have an out-of-band network (built with traditional components)? Terry Slattery explained some of the pros and cons in the Monitoring SDN Networks webinar.

  1. That's an example of SDN over-engineering. Just keep your OOB/IB management and control plane traffic in traditional/non-SDN networks. Only use SDN where its needed for user-plane traffic. Most SDN controllers wouldn't allow in-band management anyway.
