OpenDaylight ML2 Neutron MechanismDriver
The OpenStack Neutron integration with OpenDaylight consists of the ML2 MechanismDriver which acts as a REST proxy and passess all Neutron API calls into OpenDaylight.
OpenDaylight contains a NB REST service (called the NeutronAPIService) which caches data from these proxied API calls and makes it available to other services inside of OpenDaylight. One current user of the SB side of the NeutronAPIService is the OVSDB code in OpenDaylight. OVSDB uses the neutron information to isolate tenant networks using GRE or VXLAN tunnels.
