This whitepaper proposes OpenFlow: a way for researchers to run experimental protocols in the networks they use every day. OpenFlow is based on an Ethernet switch, with an internal flow-table, and a standardized interface to add and remove flow entries. Our goal is to encourage networking vendors to add OpenFlow to their switch products for deployment in college campus backbones and wiring closets. We believe that OpenFlow is a pragmatic compromise: on one hand, it allows researchers to run… Expand
Innovating in Your Network with OpenFlow: A Hands-on Tutorial
TLDR
This tutorial is your opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the platforms and debugging tools most useful for developing network control applications on OpenFlow and can apply to physical networks based on software switches, NetFPGAs, or even hardware switches at line rate. Expand
Carving research slices out of your production networks with OpenFlow
TLDR
FlowVisor is demonstrated, a special purpose OpenFlow controller that allows multiple researchers to run experiments safely and independently on the same production OpenFlow network and four network slices running in parallel. Expand
Virtualized network infrastructure using OpenFlow

Towards a NetFlow Implementation for OpenFlow Software-Defined Networks
TLDR
This paper developed the complete flow monitoring solution within OpenDaylight and evaluated its accuracy in a testbed with Open vSwitch and showed that the proposed sampling methods are accurate and can effectively reduce the resource requirements of flow measurements in OpenFlow. Expand
A technique for full flow virtualization of multi-tenant OpenFlow networks
TLDR
An OpenFlow network virtualization technique is proposed that allows prefix or wildcard matching with flow space virtualization and translates flow entries set by tenant controllers using prefix orWildcard matching to exact-match flow entries through lazy evaluation of the actual data packets.

Architecture, Implementation, and Experiments of Programmable Network Using OpenFlow
TLDR
The proposed network controller architecture will enable researchers to use their own software to control their own virtual networks and showed that a group of servers can efficiently cooperate to serve as a scalable OpenFlow controller. Expand
Virtual routers as a service: the RouteFlow approach leveraging software-defined networks
TLDR
This paper proposes RouteFlow, a commodity routing architecture that combines the line-rate performance of commercial hardware with the flexibility of open-source routing stacks (remotely) running on general purpose computers and outlines the research agenda that calls for a community-driven approach.

The Click modular router
TLDR
The Click IP router can forward 64-byte packets at 73,000 packets per second, just 10% slower than Linux alone, and is easy to extend by adding additional elements, which are demonstrated with augmented configurations. Expand
ACM SIGCOMM computer communication review
TLDR
The Internet is going mobile and wireless, perhaps quite soon, with a number of diverse technologies leading the charge, including, 3G cellular networks based on CDMA technology, a wide variety of what is deemed 2.5G cellular technologies (e.g., EDGE, GPRS and HDR), and IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs).
