Over 110 recipes to design and develop your own OpenFlow switch and OpenFlow controller About This Book Create a full-fledged, flow-based OpenFlow switch software agent from scratch Develop your own OpenFlow Controller that can control any OpenFlowMoreOver 110 recipes to design and develop your own OpenFlow switch and OpenFlow controller About This Book Create a full-fledged, flow-based OpenFlow switch software agent from scratchDevelop your own OpenFlow Controller that can control any OpenFlow switch available in the marketExplore how OpenFlow works and how it provides control plane and date plane separationComplete, step-by-step guide divided into two separate parts to give a better view of controller and switch developmentWho This Book Is For This book is intended for network protocol developers, SDN controller application developers, and academics who would like to understand and develop their own OpenFlow switch or OpenFlow controller in any programming language. With basic understanding of OpenFlow and its components, you will be able to follow the recipes in this book.What You Will Learn Create, maintain, and close an OpenFlow communication channel between the switch and controllerManage multiple switches from a single controller and vice versa: manage a single switch from multiple controllers with different controller rolesConfigure an OpenFlow switch using standard OpenFlow controller and switch proceduresExplore tables present in OpenFlow switches such as flow tables, group tables, and meter tablesUsing controller and switch procedures, program tables within the switch, such as flow tables, group tables, and meter tablesIn Detail Moving on from the traditional, configuration-driven network, OpenFlow paves the way to an open, centrally programmable structure providing standard interfaces between the controller and the actual packet forwarding entity.This book has been divided into two parts to provide you with everything you need to know to develop either an OpenFlow switch or an OpenFlow controller. Starting from the basics of establishing communication channels between the controller and switch, this book explains in detail about the various tables, table operations, and switch and controller procedures.
