Project Title

Nicira Networks Development and Support for OpenFlow Campus Trials
a.k.a. OFNOX

Technical Contacts

PI: Martin Casado casado@nicira.com

Participating Organizations

Nicira Networks, Palo Alto CA

GPO Liaison System Engineer

Josh Smift Josh Smift

Scope

Nicira Networks will support enhancements to the NOX software base used in OpenFlow, and provide trouble-shooting support for OpenFlow shakedown in campus and backbone environments in GENI. Campuses and backbones are expected to use NOX for at least three years, with Nicira's help (BBN and Stanford will also help support campuses). The primary enhancements to NOX are 1) Upgrades for NOX compatibility with OpenFlow 1.0 in the GENI environment, 2) Design improvements that make it easier to install and run NOX in GENI and 3) a new console interface (SNAC) intended primarily for Campus IT staff to use to manage OpenFlow on their campuses.
