OpenDaylight Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) technology is a set of components that provide multi-tenant network virtualization with the OpenDaylight controller. Traditionally, configuring a network for multiple users and/or applications is a tough task as it requires the consistent configuration of a multitude of individual boxes. Rather than being fabric-centric, configuration is still mostly box-centric.

OpenDaylight’s VTN technology addresses this problem by abstracting from the physical infrastructure and its individual components. It integrates all networking resources into one big networking fabric and then slices them into virtual networks via a set of logical abstractions (vRouter, vBridge, vTunnel). The VTN components autonomously map between the logical and the physical planes. Users can design and deploy any desired network without knowing the physical network topology. A Northbound-API caters for the programmatic access to the virtualized network.

This presentation will discuss the VTN abstractions and the components providing them.
