The network is rapidly evolving. Networking is transforming from a vertically integrated industry to a horizontal model that is following the horizontal roadmap laid out buy the compute world. Horizontalization is enabling open source projects like OpenDaylight that allow the community to unbundle the networking stack and add new innovations and plug them back into a holistic framework.

This discussion covers two primary topics. First is to review a production OpenDaylight deployment in an enterprise campus. It will cover architectures, mechanisms and pain points found in early SDN adoptions. The second section is to walk through the Open vSwitch database (OVSDB) protocol and its integration into OpenDaylight. Open vSwitch is the primary virtual switch used in OpenStack and other orchestration deployments. OVSDB is the management protocol that will enable OpenDaylight to programmatically provision data paths in conjunction with orchestration systems.
