PRISM provides a way to solve the issues faced at network borders. It lets you run any legacy control plane protocol to peer with neighboring devices while retaining the original “dynamic policy and network control” features that SDN provides. Making legacy control planes work reliably on available SDN hardware like OpenFlow switches has been a tough task, and our team has worked really hard to make the solution work in a real-world commercial telecommunications/enterprise setup.
In a nutshell, PRISM lets you select a set of supported vSwitch or pSwitch switches, choose to run any centralized legacy L2/L3 protocol outwards, and still use SDN to achieve fine-grained network control.
Open PRISM is built on top of OpenMUL SDN controller.
