New Network tools used in data networks, such as Software Defined Networks (SDN) allow precise control of all network segments, so that they can be used to optimize data networks in a global way. Networks have been optimized within the scope in which they are being analysed, for example: 1. WANs, the best path is determined based on metrics such as fewer hops, and sometimes bandwidth. This information from the point of view of algorithms is not complete, since it does not include all the variables: There could be better routes to reduce latency or to increase bandwidth. 2. In wireless networks, local bandwidth is increased, as users are assigned to those AP’s that have fewer users and in the less congested frequencies. 3. LANs are not optimized by themselves, but it is possible to find a way to streamline the segmented bandwidth. Nowadays we can count, in addition to different providers, with 2 protocols, IPv4 and IPv6, which increase the number of factors involved in the analysis. As the bandwidth is a parameter that remains constant, the variable that has been chosen to be analyzed is the latency because it is the best option.
