OpenDaylight has become a nexus for open source integration, creating a new open networking stack and enabling a new generation of open source, agile IT infrastructure. The fifth “Boron” release provides new tooling and documentation to support application developers, as well as greater integration with industry frameworks from OPNFV and OpenStack to CORD and Atrium. Boron also brings a practical focus on two leading types of deployments: (1) direct control of virtual switches to provide network virtualization and NFV and (2) management and orchestration of existing networks to provide new features and automation. This talk will cover trends in open SDN and cloud networking, with a focus on Boron milestones. In particular, it dives into the architecture across OpenStack and OpenDaylight to enable OpenStack service function chaining support in OpenDaylight.
