The networking infrastructure of the KM3NeT detector, implemented with both White Rabbit and standard high preformance switches, is presented in its peculiar asymmetric and hybrid layout. It is one of the first usecases for Software Defined Networking in Astroparticle Physics experiments. Thanks to this innovative technology, dangerous network loops are prevented and a complete deterministic control of the handled data flows is obtained.
