The ONF finally reacts to the existence of OpenDaylight…
We are pleased that the OpenDaylight Project, which centers on the controller, relies for its southbound interface on the OpenFlow protocol standard, the first and only vendor-neutral, standard communication interface between the control and forwarding layers of an SDN architecture.
We are pleased to see our member companies take leading roles in the OpenDaylight Project and we always encourage them to participate in industry initiatives – including open-source ones – designed to foster innovation, implementation, and deployment.
Why has it taken the ONF this long to come up with a reaction like this. Somehow I get the feeling that they are not being sincere but I have nothing to proof it.
