Indigo (2nd Generation)
Indigo2 is the basis of Switch Light by Big Switch Networks and the Indigo Virtual Switch. Indigo2 has two component: Indigo2 Agent and LoxiGen.
The Indigo2 agent represents the core libraries and includes a) a HAL abstraction layer to make it easy to integrate with the forwarding and port management interfaces of physical- or virtual- switches and b) a configuration abstraction layer to support running OpenFlow in a “hybrid” mode on your switch.
LoxiGen is a compiler that generates OpenFlow marshalling/un-marshalling libraries in multiple languages. Currently it supports C (called “loci”), but Java and Python are in development.
