The primary goal of ODP is to provide a common set of APIs for application portability across a diverse range of networking platforms (SoCs and servers) that offer various types of hardware acceleration. By decoupling the API definition from its implementation, APIs can be defined to address data plane application needs rather than to expose specific platform capabilities and allows vendors full freedom to implement these APIs in a manner optimized to the capabilities of each platform.
