Cisco Open SDN Controller (OSC)
The Cisco® Open SDN Controller is Cisco’s commercial distribution of the open-source OpenDaylight software-defined networking (SDN) controller. It delivers business agility through automation of standards-based network infrastructure.
Built as a highly scalable SDN platform, the Open SDN Controller abstracts away the complexity of managing heterogeneous networks to improve service delivery and reduce operating costs
As open-source-based software, the Open SDN Controller continuously advances through ongoing Cisco innovation and the support of the OpenDaylight community.
Application demand is pushing IT to meet service and scalability levels beyond what is possible with traditional networks. To accelerate IT, organizations must automate and monitor processes to provision, configure, operate, and monitor networks through abstraction-based intelligence and control.Cisco DevNet provides robust controller-based applications creation, integration, and verification support through a comprehensive development environment.
The Open SDN Controller is optimized for open-source innovators who value supported open-source SDN technologies, application developers building on OpenDaylight, and environments such as higher education that use technologies like OpenFlow to support heterogeneous network elements.
