OpenFlow Data Plane Abstraction (OF-DPA)
OpenFlow Data Plane Abstraction (OF-DPA) software enables development and deployment of scalable and high-performance OpenFlow-based Software-Defined Networking applications on widely deployed Broadcom-based switches.
OF-DPA is compliant with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) OpenFlow v1.3.1 specification. OF-DPA v1.0 defines and implements a hardware abstraction layer that maps the industry-leading StrataXGS® switch architecture to the OpenFlow 1.3.1 switch and pipeline.
The OF-DPA specification and API are openly published and provided with turnkey reference implementation on ODM- and OCP-compliant switches to enable a community and academia-based development ecosystem. Any OpenFlow v1.3.1-compliant controller and agent can be integrated with OF-DPA to enable popular SDN use cases such as Virtual Tenant Networks, Network Virtualization, Traffic Engineering and Service Chaining.
OF-DPA software is available in two packages:
OpenFlow 1.3.1 Switch Pipeline Specification and Software
Broadcom’s OpenFlow Data Plane Abstraction (OF-DPA) is an application software component that implements an adaptation layer between OpenFlow and the Broadcom Silicon SDK. OF-DPA enables scalable implementation of OpenFlow 1.3 on Broadcom switch devices.
