The traffic in research network for the new structure of the network and new service research has the various properties. From the perspective of a specific traffic point of view, transmission of traffic with different requirements using a single routing protocol is an obstacle to satisfy requirements. In this study, we classify the properties of the traffic into two types. We propose the way that we can get the overall optimization effect, the experiment proves it by providing independent multiple forwarding path by applying optimized algorithm by types. In order to distinguish each type of traffic we use the ports on the switch and in order to implement independent path we apply OpenFlow system. In other words, we present the measure that can be implemented to improve the satisfaction of the traffic by making multiple paths by OpenFlow controller according to the type of traffic and by enforcing in Forwarder.
