Abstract The legacy IP networks which are used for sharing information across the platforms (e.g., Computers, Mobile devices, and other Electronic devices) are difficult to control and configure because of not controlled from a centralized location in contrast SDN (Software-Defined Networking) is an agile and programmable network manner, through which networks are controllable from the central devices which are called SDN controllers. SDN threelayer structure subsists of the Infrastructure layer, Application layer, and Control layer. We focus in this paper on the adoption, integration, or implementation of SDN in enterprises and service providers. The adoption and integration of SDN are in the problem from starting; later on, work and development make it near to fully integrated and implemented in enterprises and services provides networking, But the hurdles problem persists in implementation, adoption, and integration of SDN. Those difficulties and problems are due to that SDN is yet too standardized and yet to provide software which full fill the needs of enterprises and service providers.
