OpenDayLight (ODL) Services

Software defined networking (SDN) is technology that the world is moving towards. Calsoft works with SDN providers and network equipment manufacturers to build scalable products in sync with our long-standing networking expertise. SDN has 3 layers – Apps which run on top of Controllers, Controller itself (like ODL) & the SDN-enabled switches (like OVS).

OpenDaylight is a highly available, modular, extensible, scalable and multi-protocol controller infrastructure built for SDN deployments on modern heterogeneous multi-vendor networks. ODL provides a model-driven service abstraction platform that allows users to write apps that easily work across a wide variety of hardware and south-bound protocols.

ODL is working to make interoperable, programmable networks a reality.
