OpenDaylight Mini Summit [clear filter]
Tuesday, October 22


An Introduction to OpenDaylight's First Release, Chris Wright, Red Hat
This talk will give a brief description of SDN and the problems it is trying to solve in general terms. Then the presentation will describe the OpenDaylight Project along with how and why it was formed. Next will come a general description of OpenDaylight Architecture, and finally more detail will be given on each key feature/component in the first release.

OpenDaylight In Practice, Giovanni Meo, Cisco
This presentation will explain what the "controller" project aims to deliver in the context of OpenDayLight and how the goals are achieved. Also, it will provide an overview of the components that constitutes the controller and zoom in some of them like the Service Abstraction Layer.

Network Virtualization Support in OpenDaylight, Kostas Katrinis, IBM
Network virtualization brings many of the same benefits of server and storage virtualization to networking such as logical isolation and multi-tenancy, independence from limitations of the underlying physical infrastructure and protocols, and the ability to rapidly deploy virtual networks for new workloads. Network virtualization is an important application of software-defined networking, and a number of virtualization technologies have been brought to OpenDaylight to support this important use case.

The virtualization projects proposed for OpenDaylight provide different virtual network models and also different implementations, based on OpenFlow, overlays and encapsulation, and also standard IETF protocols. In this session we will provide a brief overview of each virtualization project and also summarize their similarities, differences, and trade-offs. We will also discuss approaches for these technologies to interoperate within OpenDaylight and identify services and absractions that can serve multiple virtualization efforts while retaining flexibility for OpenDaylight users.

Virtual Tenant Networks (VTNs) - Network Virtualization on OpenDaylight, Peer Hasselmeyer, NEC
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.
