Application Plane

On a network the Application Plane is the layer that has applications and services that make requests for network functions from the Control Plane and the Data plane. On traditional networks security, management, and monitoring devices or applications reside in this layer. In software defined networking the functionality of these devices is largely the same but the delivery is abstracted, centralized, and often virtualized.
