OpenDaylight OpenFlow Plugin:Proposal

Name

OpenFlow Plugin

Repository Name

openflowplugin

Description

OpenFlow is a vendor-neutral standard communications interface defined to enable interaction between the control and forwarding layers of an SDN architecture. The OpenFlow plugin project intends to develop a plugin to support implementations of the OpenFlow specification as it develops and evolves. Specifically the project will continue to provide support for the existing OpenFlow 1.0 implementation, developing a plugin aiming to support OpenFlow 1.3.x, and further supporting subsequent OpenFlow specifications. The plugin shall be implemented in such a way that existing and future OpenFlow protocol specifications can be integrated and published for the OpenDaylight controller.

Scope

  • Southbound plugin and integration of OpenFlow 1.3.x library project
  • Ongoing support and integration of the OpenFlow specification
  • The plugin should be implemented in an easily extensibile manner
  • Protocol verification activities will be performed on supported OpenFlow specifications
