Software defined network (SDN) allows the decoupling of data and control plane for dynamic and scalable network management. SDN is usually associated with OpenFlow protocol which is a standard interface that enables the network controllers to determine the path of network packets across a network of switches. In this paper, we evaluate openflow performance using commodity wireless router and raspberry pi with two different SDN controllers. Our test setup consists of wired and wireless client devices connected to openflow enabled commodity wireless router and raspberry pi. All clients used traffic generator tool to transmits data to a sink server host. The results are promising and paves the way for further research on using software defined wireless network.
