SDN Test Suite: Results for Floodlight and OpenContrail

We compared the functionality and data plane of the following three approaches for virtual networking: OpenContrail solution: This overlay-SDN solution uses BGP control plane and MPLSoGRE for the data plane. Each virtual dataplane (called vRouter) is also a full-fledged routing gateway. The snapshot of the […]

Typical SDN-based Network Virtualization The architecture rolled out can be one of the following: Pure-overlay: Programmable virtual dataplane elements (vDP) are inserted into edge servers and controlled by the controller cluster. They form overlay networks using tunnels that are routed over the legacy network fabric. […]

SDN Test Suite – Motivation

This is the second in a series of posts about the SDN test suite that we’re building as part of the SDN Hub open-source ecosystem. Read a teaser hereĀ and the followup post with test results here. Our goal is to build a modular, easily-configurable software […]

Report on the first-ever SDN Hackathon – Dec 2013

December 11, 2013 by events No Comments

We organized the first-ever hackathon focused on building useful networking solutions. Thanks to Software-defined Networking, we now have novel platforms to build applications that solve pain-points of network operators. In this hackathon, we encouraged teams to build applications over the OpenDaylight platform. On the day […]
