Current SDN controllers are not cognitive. We propose a new architecture for an SDN controller to enable intelligence. The proposed new architecture is based on Multi-agent systems. As a prototype, we have built a MAS-SDN controller using the GOAL agent programming language. We highlight the motivation behind the new architecture, describe the architecture and provide some initial results

As enterprises migrate to SDN, a brown field network transitional state is inevitable, where both Software Defined and Legacy networks coexist. The aim of this work is to further the knowledge in the area of Hybrid Software Defined Network (SDN) networks, by investigating requirements and challenges involved in building such networks. This work proposes a Hybrid SDN controller architecture to establish, control and inter-domain communication between the legacy and SDN domains.
