Abstract

With the growing impact of globalization, large-scale networks are now not countable with the tip of fingers as businesses have grown drastically and every day more and more organization are stepping into the lobby of large-scale networks. While the entire network is allocated with a diverse set of resources, it is necessary to address the balance of the usage of Internet resources to avoid long waiting queues and congestions over certain hotlines of communication channels that have always been the focus for the entire market. As the traditional network has evolved to software defined-networks (SDN), for addressing load balancing issue over SDN, we as researchers have come forward to provide the solution to the problem by means of this chapter. Here,  researchers have discussed and demonstrated the implementation of the unique technique of load balancing on software-defined networks on Floodlight Controller over mininet simulator with the focus on Data Visualization while performing the experiment.
