Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a rapidly emerging technology that brings new flexibility to networking through the separation of the control and data plane. This paper presents one SDN based framework, among several potential valid approaches, for addressing the mobility of operational nodes within a coalition environment. The operational nodes require mobility to enable roaming, multi-homing, and handover over heterogeneous sub-networks. The paper characterizes these sub-networks as protected core networks.
