  • EUC 2014 – Marc Sugiyama – Weaving OpenFlow Together with LOOM
    2014-08-20 Erlang Central

    Videos



    LINC and LOOM are an open source OpenFlow software switch and controller. This talk focuses on LOOM, the controller. We'll start with where LOOM fits into the network architecture, the goals of the project, and its design direction. Then we'll dive into the details of how to use the LOOM libraries to write your own OpenFlow controllers. Talk objectives: - Introduce LOOM and the LOOM libraries. Target audience: - Anyone interested in experimenting with the OpenFlow protocol to control ...

  • Tailflow – An Openflow Controller Framework
    2013-06-13 Erlang Central

    Presentations Videos



    Tail-f's Network Control System (NCS) supports programming of network services on both traditional networks and Openflow networks. Tailflow is the part of NCS that supports Openflow. Inspired by the 20 year old ideas around micro-protocols, Tailflow introduces a concept called the 'flowlet'. Each flowlet encapsulates  some minimum amount of logic in order to make it composable and easy to understand. By stacking flowlets on top of each other, the full functionality of an Openflow device is co ...

  • Erlang and OpenFlow: A Match Made in the Cloud!
    2013-03-18 Erlang Central

    Videos



    How our view of networking must evolve to address the multi-core crisis! I'll be describing LINC: an Open Source OpenFlow switching platform developed in Erlang, intended for use with the OTP. I will also introduce OpenFlow, the Open Network Foundation, and the community around LINC called FlowForwarding.org. Talk objectives: Spark debate and interest in solving networking challenges in ultra-scale computing platforms like Erlang/OTP and Scala/AKKA. Target audience: The Erlang/OTP commu ...

  • The Openflow Soft Switch
    2012-05-28 Erlang Central

    Videos



    This talk is about the idea of OpenFlow and how we brought it to life using Erlang. I'm going to speak about the design decisions we made and the problems we encountered when implementing an OpenFlow 1.2 software switch in Erlang. I will also describe the process of integrating it with the existing OpenFlow tools that all speak OpenFlow version 1.0 and how we used QuickCheck to test everything. Talk objectives: To give insights on how we implement OpenFlow switch in Erlang and spread the word ...

    Software Defined Networks (SDN) is one of the hot topics in the networking industry these days. SDN is a radical change in the way networking is approached today. SDN brings the whole software development eco system close the network forwarding elements like switches and router. SDN enables the operators to integrate all the network resources and aspect into the application domain. The network virtualization will follow the computer virtualization. By defining a vendor agnostic API (OpenFlow) t ...
