OPENFLOW® THIN SWITCHING FOR BARE METAL SWITCHES AND VIRTUAL SWITCHES
Switch Light is a thin switching software platform for merchant silicon-based physical switches and virtual switches within hypervisors. Switch Light is based on the Indigo Project, an open source effort within Project Floodlight, that provides software to support thin switching and provides a consistent and interoperable implementation of the OpenFlow® protocol. Switch Light liberates you from historically proprietary, closed networking architectures, and enables radically reduced cost of operations by centralizing and automating traditional provisioning, configuration, and policy management functions. Switch Light provides an OpenFlow® data plane implementation for software-defined networking, and completes the Big Switch Networks Open SDN Suite, simultaneously enabling open source systems within the SDN developer community and commercially supported solutions for production networks.
