In this video we discuss the emerging SDN technology and how it is changing networking as we know it.

We discuss the various definitions of SDN including the OpenFlow protocol.


This video demonstrates OpenFlow integration between the HP VAN SDN Controller and Mininet. The HP Controller is an SDN controller that supports OpenFlow version 1.0 and 1.3. Mininet allows for easy learning and testing of and OpenFlow network emulated on a PC. This is similar in concept to GNS3 or HP Simware.


In this video David demonstrates the configuration of OpenFlow on physical HP switches. Both Comware and ProVision configuration are explained. The switches are integrated with the HP VAN SDN Controller which updates the flow tables on the switches. David explains the OpenFlow flow tables on both the Controller and the switches. The switches used in the demonstration are HP 3800 and 5900 series switches. This is an example of Open SDN and OpenFlow in a physical switch environment.
