ONF Holds Its First Test Event

Apr 25, 2012

Last month, the Open Networking Foundation had its first ever interoperability test event for OpenFlow® v1.0 at the Ixia iSimCity lab in Santa Clara, CA. The goal of the “Plug Fest” was to make sure that various vendor implementations of the OpenFlow® protocol work together to ensure success for commercial deployments. More than a dozen organizations – representing switches, controllers, and even a flowvisor – attended the event, which was hosted by the ONF Testing & Interoperability Working Group, By showing that different industry components work together, customers will have greater confidence to build out networks based on the OpenFlow® protocol, using a variety of suppliers.

Check out this video for a window into the event, our participating member companies, and ONF’s role in furthering Software-Defined-Networking and the utility of the OpenFlow® protocol standard.
