The OpenFlow specification is defined to simplify and cost-optimize network switch equipment by moving complexity and intelligence to a controller. An OpenFlow switch consists of one or more flow tables and a group table, which perform packet lookups and forwarding. The OpenFlow switch also includes an OpenFlow channel to an external controller. The controller manages the switch via the OpenFlow protocol and can add, update, and delete flow entries, both reactively (in response to packets) and proactively.
Aricent’s OpenFlow client is a portable implementation of the OpenFlow client functionality.
