Open vSwitch 2014 Fall Conference: OFConnect: An Open Source OpenFlow Networking Library

presented by: Deepa Karnad Dhurka and Ramya Bolla,

OFConnect is an open source library that implements OpenFlow protocol to handle network connectivity between controllers and switches. The current support includes IPv4 with TCP transport and has been integrated successfully with a controller (mul).

This talk will describe the basic design and architecture of the library and how you can build a controller or switch around it. Additionally, we will share how you can contribute to the library by adding a transport protocol, greater OpenFlow protocol awareness, and IPv6 support. A demo of the library integrated with controller(mul) on a mininet test bed will be part of this talk.
