The Clean Slate Lab at Stanford University currently manages the following software packages for the OpenFlow aggregate:

  • OpenFlow reference implementation,
  • Indigo firmware for Pronto 3240 and 3290,
  • FlowVisor,
  • Debugging/monitoring tools
  • Expedient and Opt-in Manager
  • SNAC
  • NOX

Stanford deployments

Support other campuses

  • Helping campuses deploy new software
  • Testing controllers

Pronto Switch donation

We started a solicitation for proposals to jumpstart OpenFlow production deployments through donation of Pronto switches. Based on several rounds of review, we donated close to 31 switches to the following institutions: The GENI Project Office (GPO), in an effort to grow the OpenFlow networking substrate for GENI, funded Stanford Unviersity to distribute OpenFlow-enabled switches to campuses to help them create or grow their existing OpenFlow networks for both research and production use. We distributed approximately 30 Pronto 3290 switches among the following campuses:

  • MAX Gigapop (PIs: Abdella Battou, Balasubramania N. Pillai)
  • RENCI - Renaissance Computing Institute (PI: Ilia Baldine)
  • Kansas State University - ECE Dept (PIs: Caterina Scoglio, Don Gruenbacher)
  • North Carolina State University (PI: Rudra Dutta)
  • Duke University (PI: Jeff Chase)
  • University of North Carolina (PI: Don Smith)
  • North Carolina Central University (PIs: R. N. Uma, Donghyun David Kim, and Alade Tokuta)
  • Clemson University (PIs: Kuang-Ching Wang, Richard Brooks, Haiying Shen, and Sebastien Goasguen)
  • Georgia Institute of Technology (PIs: Nick Feamster, Russell Clark)
  • University of Arizona (PIs: Srini Ramasubramanian)

GEC10 activities


  • We supported BBN's demo "GENI For Everyone".
  • BigSwitch demonstrated their new controller


  • In GEC10, we organized a tutorial for training campus operators to deploy OpenFlow. It was very successful and attended by nearly 45 persons.
