We will demonstrate a Software-defined networking (SDN) controller that orchestrates traffic engineering for adaptive bit rate video streaming. An OpenFlow-enabled SDN architecture in combination with MPEG-DASH constitutes an optimized and seamless video streaming platform.

The GENI infrastructure was utilized to evaluate video traffic over current network architecture and SDN architecture.
