Open Networking Research Center (ONRC)
Open Networking Research Center is a new research center established by Stanford and UC Berkeley that is exclusively focused on OpenFlow and Software Defined Networking (SDN). Its mission is to develop a comprehensive intellectual framework for SDN and to develop, deploy, and support open source SDN tools and platforms to enable the larger network industry to build networks that offer increasingly sophisticated functionality yet are cheaper and simpler to manage than current networks.
ONRC has three parts to it: Research Group at Stanford, Research Group at Berkeley, and an independent non-profit lab called Open Networking Lab (ON.Lab). ON.Lab is responsible for open source SDN tools and platforms.
