Quick Description



Kernel Projects


Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) ODL ProjectRobert VargaLink
ArchetypesThis project hosts OpenDaylight example project templates, initially in the form of Maven archetypes.
Michael Vorburger
Infrastructure UtilitiesThis project offers technical utilities and infrastructures for other projects to use.Faseela KLink
MD-SALThe Model-Driven Service Adaptation Layer (MD-SAL) is message-bus inspired extensible middleware component that provides messaging and data storage functionality based on data and interface models defined by application developers (i.e. user-defined models).Robert VargaLink
ODL Root ParentODL Root Parent provides common settings for all the projects participating in simultaneous release. ODL Root Parent Project contains a POM that includes common external dependencies, distribution management, plugin management, repository information etc that is common to all the projects. This pom has only defaults which other projects will inherit if the defaults are not specified.Robert VargaLink
ControllerOpenDaylight Controller is Java-based, model-driven controller using YANG as its modeling language for various aspects of the system and applications and with its components serves as a base platform for other OpenDaylight applications.Link
PlasticThe Plastic Project Proposal is a great place to get the five minute read of what Plastic is and why you might want to consider using it. A portion of that content is repeated below.Allan Clarke

ServiceUtils is an infrastructure project for OpenDaylight aimed at providing utilities that will assist in Operation and Maintenance of different services provided by OpenDaylight. A service is a functionality provided by the ODL controller as seen by the operator. These services can be categerized as Networking services, e.g. L2, L3/VPN, NAT etc., and Infra services, e.g. Openflow. These services are provided by different ODL projects like Netvirt, Genius and Openflowplugin and are comprised of a set of java karaf bundles and associated MD-SAL datastores.

YANG ToolsYANG Tools is an infrastructure project aiming to develop necessary tooling and libraries providing support of NETCONF and YANG for Java (JVM-language based) projects and applications, such as Model-Driven SAL for Controller (which uses YANG as its modeling language) and Netconf / OFConfig plugins.Robert VargaLink

Protocol Projects

BGP LS PCEPThe OpenDaylight controller provides an implementation of BGP (RFC 4271) as a south-bound protocol plugin and a north-bound REST/JAVA API.Robert VargaLink
GeniusGenius project provides Generic Network Interfaces, Utilities & Services. Any ODL application can use these to achieve interference-free co-existence with other applications using Genius.Hema Gopalakrishnan
NETCONFNETCONF is an XML-based protocol used for configuration and monitoring devices in the network. The base NETCONF protocol is described in RFC-6241.Jamo LuhrsenLink
LISP Flow MappingThe Lisp Flow Mapping service provides LISP Mapping System services. This includes LISP Map-Server and LISP Map-Resolver services, to store and serve the mapping data to data plane nodes as well as to OpenDaylight applications.Lori JakabLink
OpenFlow Plugin

OVSDB IntegrationThe OVSDB project of OpenDaylight provides southbound plugins to manage OVS devices.Chetan Arakere Gowdru Link
P4 PluginP4 Plugin is used to make the controller be able to work in conjunct with P4 targets. It will provide basic functions, such as channel, devcie management, table management and packet processing and etc.

SNMP4SDNSNMP4SDN is a southbound plugin that can control the off-the-shelf commodity Ethernet switches for the purpose of building SDN using Ethernet switches. For Ethernet switches, forwarding table and ACL are where one can install the flow configuration on, and this is done via SNMP and CLI in the proposed plugin. Yi-Ling
TransportPCETransportPCE primary function is to control an optical transport (WDM or OTN) infrastructure using a non-proprietary South Bound Interface.
Currently, the project supports NETCONF devices relying on the  OpenROADM MSA specifications.
Guillaume Lambert Link

App Projects





NetVirtNetvirt is a Network Virtualization application developed on Opendaylight consisting of modular sub-services such as L2(ELAN), L3(L3VPN), ACL, NAT, DHCP, IPv6 Control and more.
Neutron Northbound

Plastic (Remove)Plastic is a model-to-model transformation library supporting northbound and southbound payloads

Service Projects





Support Projects


Integration/DistributionThe project to integrate artifacts from all Java-based ODL projects into a common Karaf distribution.


Packaging and Deployment support, including packages (RPMs), configuration management tools (Ansible, Puppet) and pre-built images (containers, Vagrant base boxes).

Integration/TestProject for all the system test code and system test tools (test tools that are specific to ODL but not specific to a particular ODL project and do not need to concern themselves with changing internal APIs of an ODL project
