The current growth in wireless network proof that there is no signs of slowing down. The 5G technology is in its first steps research, in this way researches are currently in progress to explore different architectural designs to address their key challenges. SDN technology have been seen as promising enablers for this new motivation of networks development, which will play an essential role in the design of 5G wireless networks. Existing wireless networks are starting to be insufficient in meeting the actual data demand, for the reason of their inflexible and expensive equipment as well as complex and non-agile control plane management. The gain of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology has increased in recent years, in the process to change networking ecosystems. It has already been applied to data center networks and wide area networks. This paper found that the software-defined approach is thus a reasonable candidate architecture to offer, in part data demand as well as the quality of service for these data. We considered that software defined networks (SDNs) is the best solution. As the simulation evaluation results suggest, the proposed architecture can effectively improve the quality of service in terms of: time insertion, Latency and throughput.
