OpenDaylight: Delivering SDN Innovation Through Open Community

Presented by

Colin Dixon, Technical Steering Committee Chair, OpenDaylight; Principal Engineer, Brocade

About this talk

When the idea of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) started gaining momentum, commercial suppliers answered by each creating their own SDN controller. It became clear that if the industry pooled its efforts, the result would be faster time to market for everyone and help spur innovation. The OpenDaylight open source project was founded in 2013 to create an open, common platform for SDN and to enable NFV and is today considered the industry's de facto standard platform. More than 50 companies are supporting the community's work to build a modular platform that includes traditional and emerging southbound protocols, a common northbound interface, and open APIs. The project's third release called "Lithium" made its debut in June 2015. Here you'll see what progress has been made to-date, and what's in store for Lithium and beyond.
