OpenDaylight Delivers Open Source Software to Enable Software-Defined Networking

Developers Collaborate Across Company Lines to Deliver an Open, Common Architecture for Network Programmability

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- The OpenDaylight Project, a community-led and industry-supported open source platform to advance Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), today announced that its first open source software release "Hydrogen" is available for download.

OpenDaylight is an open platform for network programmability to enable SDN and create a solid foundation for NFV for networks at any size and scale. Enterprises, service providers, equipment providers and academia can download Hydrogen today and begin to evaluate, commercialize and deploy SDN and NFV. With over a million lines of code, Hydrogen is the first simultaneous release of OpenDaylight delivering three different editions to help a wide array of users get up and running as quickly as possible--Base Edition, Virtualization Edition and Service Provider Edition.

"OpenDaylight formed with the goal of tackling one of IT's toughest challenges: simplifying network management," said David Meyer, Technical Steering Committee chair, OpenDaylight. "This first release is a great step forward and the community is already looking to build on its work to address a variety of additional capabilities and features in subsequent releases that are being discussed at the first OpenDaylight Summit this week."

Hydrogen Base Edition is for those who are exploring SDN and OpenFlow for proof-of-concepts or academic initiatives in physical or virtual environments. Hydrogen Virtualization Edition for data centers includes all the components of Base plus functionality for creating and managing Virtual Tenant Networks and virtual overlays, and includes applications for security and network management. Service Provider Edition is for providers and carriers who manage existing networks and want to plot a path to SDN and NFV. It includes Base plus protocol support commonly encountered in service provider networks, as well as security and network management applications.

Key features of each Hydrogen edition:

Base Edition

  • Controller: A modular, extensible, scalable and multi-protocol SDN controller based on OSGi.
  • OpenFlow Plugin: Integration of OpenFlow protocol library in controller Service Abstraction Layer (SAL).
  • OpenFlow Protocol Library: OpenFlow 1.3 protocol library implementation.
  • OVSDB: Open vSwitch Database configuration and management protocol support, e.g. for Open vSwitch and other OVSDB servers.
  • YANG Tools: Java-based NETCONF and YANG tooling for OpenDaylight projects.

Virtualization Edition (includes Base Edition)

  • Affinity Metadata Service: APIs to express workload relationships and service levels.
  • Defense4All: DDoS detection and mitigation framework.
  • Open DOVE: Multi-tenant network virtualization based on overlays, including control plane and Open vSwitch-based data plane.
  • Virtual Tenant Network: Multi-tenant network virtualization application using OpenFlow.

Service Provider Edition (includes Base Edition)

  • Affinity Metadata Service: APIs to express workload relationships and service levels.
  • BGP-LS/PCEP: Support for traffic engineering with BGP-LS (BGP protocol library and topology model) and PCEP (path programming model).
  • Defense4All: DDoS detection and mitigation framework.
  • LISP Flow Mapping: Locator/identifier Separation Protocol plugin, LISP mapping service (can be used to implement virtual networks).
  • SNMP4SDN: SNMP protocol support and APIs to manage commodity Ethernet switches.

"We are seeing new OpenDaylight implementations and solutions coming to the forefront every day," said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. "All signs point to 2014 being a key year for the project as we continue to grow the community, build the architecture and engage with organizations and end users who want to accelerate the path to SDN and NFV."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.
