    3232=== What Is OFDP? ===
    33 OFDP leverages LLDP for advertisements. However OFDP, as currently implemented in Nox's discovery.py, uses a "normal" multicast address for sending OpenFlow Discovery messages.  Unlike LLDP, a switch will forward these OFDP advertisements.
     33OFDP is an artificial term used here to differentiate from the "normal" LLDP mentioned above. OFDP leverages LLDP for advertisements. However OFDP, as currently implemented in Nox's discovery.py, uses a "normal" multicast address for sending OpenFlow Discovery messages.  Unlike LLDP, a switch will forward these OFDP advertisements.
