SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

I am working on USB Connectivity between android 2.1 Host and Windows Mobiles 6.1 device...When I connect the windows mobile device to android host through USB (in RNDIS Mode), It is appearing as 'eth1' interface instead of 'usb0' interface.
Why 'eth1' instead of 'usb0' ?
Does behaviour of 'eth1' is same as 'usb0'?
yep, this one is your phone, which is probably acting as an internet access point if your other modem wasn't attached when you booted your computer.
you should look also at the 'lsusb' output
which should look something like
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
and do a search on the ID of your phone to find out the capabilities
(the ID is the number that looks like 1d6b:0002)
it might not be able to switch into other then a network card mode, and particularly not without proprietary software to do so, but i would at least look into it.
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
you are half right, it isn't proprietary of microsoft per-se, but rather proprietary of the company that built the machine, however if you look hard enough you *might* find a hack that lets you do it, or if you are lucky the company may have written linux drivers for the device, the situation isn't hopeless yet, but yes it is loading as a network card, at least that is wnat it appears. Like i said, run lsusb and do a search for the usb id of the devic, you might find a bit more technical documents on how to get it to work in linux.
