OpenFlow

OpenFlow is an open standard that allows you to run experimental protocols in production networks. More information about OpenFlow in general is available in a couple of places:

The following pages have more information about OpenFlow in GENI:

  • Information about the GENI network core, a set of OpenFlow-capable switches in NLR and Internet2.
  • An example topology of a campus OpenFlow network, designed to allow experimenters to access the GENI nework core in a variety of ways depending on their needs.
  • Information about FOAM, the FlowVisor OpenFlow Aggregate manager, which sites in GENI use to allow experimenters to allocate OpenFlow resources.
  • Information about various OpenFlow controller software options.

This is just a start; stay tuned for more.
