How to Build a Rich SAL on Diverse Hardware, Curt Beckmann, Brocade & Colin Dixon, IBM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

To be succesful, OpenDaylight must somehow deliver a powerful northfacing API, and do so by managing a hugely diverse underlying infrastructure. Recent progress within the ONF will make it easier to deliver deterministic OpenFlow interoperability across a variety of underlying switches, but depends on some new support in controllers. Colin and Curt will talk about ways to provide this new support in OpenDaylight, and how this can be done in a way that makes OpenDaylight even more valuable and compelling.

Talk to me about how an SDN controller can hide the diversity of hardware. | I'm active at the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), where I chair the Forwarding Abstractions WG (FAWG). FAWG recently published the "Table Type Patterns" (TTP) spec. TTPs are a modeling language for OpenFlow help abstract away hardware differences. Curt is also project lead on the TTP project at OpenDaylight.
