OpenDaylight Mini-Summit: South-bound Rendering Interface for Programmable Data Plane - Moderator: Anu Mercian, HPE; Panelists: Prem Jonnalagadda, Barefoot Networks; Michael Zayats, HPE; Haoyu Song, Huawei; and Jan Medved, Cisco

ODL ecosystem has evolved extensively with multiple API for various applications and features which strengthens the usability of SDN in network deployment. The south-bound rendering modules are focused on OpenFlow, which has become the de facto standard to control the network. OpenFlow requires pre-defined protocols and does not provide flexibility to manage large number of new protocols. There have been new efforts such as fd.io, OpenSwitch, P4, and POF which are focused on providing a programmable data plane to render scalable control plane programmability. In this panel, we discuss high-performance packet-processing, hardware switch-agnosticism, programmable packet processors, protocol-independence, the need for them and the problems they solve using SDN.

Come join us in this existing panel representing open source efforts for advanced south-bound rendering and packet processing. Questions can be addressed to the panel in advance by sending them to anu.mercian@hpe.com
