This project aims for the assessment of selected path establishment methods adapted to SDN. Several studies and experimentations are performed including the installation of a Segment Routing and Proactive Forwarding test scenario, the observation of their interoperability with the OpenFlow protocol, their behavior in traffic handling, their performance in front of network events, and their effects on the SDN controller's time response. The main goal is to research about the influence of path establishment methods towards the SDN controller performance, which may or may not have an effect over the ability to sustain traffic during controlled and unexpected changes in the network.
