Abstract: A software defined network (SDN) is combined with centralized management by providing separation of the network, data and control planes. Different cloud computing environments, enterprise data centers and service providers are using this important feature. By implementing software defined data centers. Here in this paper we have used Mininet to demonstrate the applicability of SDN for different scalability. We study the performance of two SDN controllers – RYU and POX, that are implemented in Python using Mininet and D-ITG, Distributed Internet Traffic Generator. During this study we have used two network topologies, single and linear. The performance parameters used are maximum delay, average jitter, average bitrate. Experimental results demonstrated that the linear topology with RYU controller performs better as compared to single topology with POX controller for different network sizes. 
Keywords:  POX, RYU, D-ITG, SDN.
