Mininet

Mininet is a software emulator for prototyping a large network on a single machine. 

Mininet can be used to quickly create a realistic virtual network running actual kernel, switch and software application code on a personal computer. Mininet allows the user to quickly create, interact with, customize and share a software-defined network (SDN) prototype to simulate a network topology that uses Openflow switches.
