As inventors of OpenFlow and SDN, we seek to "open up the Internet infrastructure for innovations" and enable the larger network industry to build networks that offer increasingly sophisticated functionality yet are cheaper and simpler to manage than current networks.
We are now focused on creating a solid intellectual foundation of SDN
- SDN control plane abstractions.
- SDN systems: OpenFlow optimized switch or fabric, network operating system, network virtualization system, and programming and debugging systems.
- New network capabilities enabled by SDN.
- Exploring scalability, reliability, and security of SDN and its components.
