User Tutorial: Deploying OpenDaylight & OpenFlow into an Existing Network - Steven Noble, NetDef
In this tutorial/lab, we will start with a L3 routed network with four
L3 network devices running BGP + OSPF, where two of the nodes will be
OpenFlow capable switches running as normal L3 network devices.

After demonstrating the functionality of the network, OpenDaylight will
be set up and the first OpenFlow capable device will be migrated to the
OpenDaylight controller.  Quagga will be utilized to provide routing
information and OpenFlow will be used to program the traffic flows to
the switch.

Once the network connectivity has been restored, the second OpenFlow
capable device will be converted to OpenFlow mode and connected up to
the same OpenDaylight Controller.

Wildcard Tutorial - Developing UI Apps for ODL Using DLUX Modularity - Harman Singh, Cisco
Dlux is the default UI for ODL controller. It uses angularjs to develop pure javascript based UI. Dlux can act as a platform to include external applications into ODL and show them inside the DLUX UI itself. This DLUX modularity capability is based on the karaf bundles, where any external developer can deploy an application UI via karaf bundle in odl container and dlux can include that UI, once bundle is enable.

A new UI application karaf bundle will use blueprint based xml configuration files.

Best Practices and Pitfalls for Building Products Out of OpenDaylight - Colin Dixon, Brocade and Devin Avery, Brocade
The OpenDaylight project is designed to be easily consumed by companies that would like to build products based on OpenDaylight. However, doing so in an efficient way requires care. The path of least resistance for local development often results in accidentally forking, which causes protracted pain to resolve. Further, it is relatively easy to fall afoul of the Eclipse Public License without carefully understanding it.

In this talk, Colin will talk (at a high-level) about his experience building products from OpenDaylight at two companies including key recommendations about how to structure code repositories, when you should push patches back to OpenDaylight, and how to consume OpenDaylight as close to real time as possible without disrupting local development.

The Generic, Extensible, and Elastic Time Series Data Repository (TSDR) – A New OpenDaylight Lithium Project - YuLing Chen, Dell & Rajesh Narayanan, Dell
TSDR has been a missing component in the SDN architecture. ODL controller today collects OpenFlow (OF) stats, and stores them in an in-memory data store. This limits the ability to capture large scale time series data over the time and make it available to northbound applications. This also adds performance and scalability overheads to ODL. In the presentation we first cover the motivation behind the project and the value it brings to the ODL and SDN ecosystems. We then describe the generic, extensible, and elastic architecture of TSDR, which is designed to collect and store various types of time series data with plug-able persistence data stores to fit into different use cases. After that, we will show a demo using TSDR to collect OF stats and store into HBase. Finally, we will present the future directions of TSDR in data analytics and controller optimization in SDN and NFV domains.

Carrier Use Cases With OpenDaylight - Ariel Noy and Gal Mainzer, ConteXtream
This presentation will combine both presentation and demonstration to show the power of ODL for completely different use cases. We will also show how several ODL clusters can be federated into a fully distributed, geographically dispersed SDN solution. The use cases that will demonstrate versatility of ODL in complex carrier use cases such as vEPC, vGi-LAN, vCPE, vSBC and more. Using an ODL controller we will show how the EPC traffic can be controlled. We will demonstrate the business benefits that it provides by reducing latency, backhaul and other associated costs. Traffic steering using ODL-based SDN fabric enables mobile operator networks to power a new generation of IOT, video, gaming and other applications. We will also show an additional use case of vGi-LAN where a subscriber-aware fabric is created using ODL and per subscriber service function chaining is established.

Demo Theater: Automatically Solving Conflict Between SDN Applications Using Network Intent Composition (NIC) API - Raphael Amorin, Hewlett-Packard Networking SDN R&D
The Intent API is used by applications to specify desired network behavior  and provide an easy way for application writers to program the network without worry about network details and co-existence of other applications . This allows decoupling of applications from physical network changes and allow them not to react, or even be aware, of changes in the network topology or technology. This reduces the potential for conflict between multiple application and simplifies the life of SDN application developers. We will demo client applications that have some conflicts of interest. You will see NIC in action and how it resolves/handles conflicts without application developer changing the application.

OpenConfig: An Industry Collaboration to Enable Programmable Network Management - Anees Shaikh, Google
Network management and monitoring is at the heart of nearly all network operations, and yet the methodologies and technology used in this critical area are lagging far behind. SDN brought abstractions and programmability to the control plane, but the management plane has not seen similar advances.

At the last OpenDaylight mini-summit we motivated a new high-level approach for SDN-based configuration management. In this talk we describe the mission and progress of a new industry collaboration to build the basis of programmable management for heterogeneous and complex networks. The OpenConfig working group is structured as a low-overhead open source project with contributions from multiple global-scale network operators. The initial focus of the group is to develop a set of vendor-neutral data models for configuration and state management based on real-world operational use cases.

OpenStack Orchestrated Network Service Chaining - Su-Hun Yun, Hideyuki Tai, and Masashi Kudo, NEC Corporation America
SDN with NFV (Network Function Virtualization) enables service chaining among L4 to L7 
network appliances such as LB (load balancer), WAN Optimization and security devices 
(FireWall, DDoS mitigation) as VNSs (Virtual Network Services).  These VNSs can be 
deployed as VM (virtual appliance) orchestrated by OpenStack. 
  OpenDaylight Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) is an OpenDaylight project focus on 
network virtualization and a set of technology components that provide a multi-tenant 
virtual network on OpenDaylight controller. VTN is South bound protocol independent 
architecture and OpenFlow was implemented as the first protocol to control both physical 
and virtual network resources. The VTN also provides NB-API for its applications so that 
they don’t require knowing all the details of physical plane’s complexity and can program 
the logical network via NB-API.  .  
  VTN has ability to accept policy from higher layer orchestrators and policy managers 
for translation into device specific configuration. As an applications, VTN interworks with 
OpenStack Neutron ML2 via Neutron Service in OpenDaylight controller.  VTN also 
provides NB-API of service chaining policy so that users can implement their service 
insertion policies on the fly. 
Once OpenStack deploy a VM of VNSs, it will work with VTN NB-API via Neutron and 
automatically create VTN and provides service provisioning for both physical and virtual 
switches. Then, users can provide their VNS policy using VTN NB-API on demand.  VTN will 
steer the selected flows to selected VNSs as the central point of management and control 
without traffic disruption.   
This presentation will discuss the OpenStack integration with OpenDaylight VTN and 
service function chaining on OpenDaylight controller.  It will also provide step by step live 
demonstrations of these scenarios.

Enabling DPDK Accelerated vSwitch in OpenDaylight and Accelerating Service Function Chaining - Sharad Mishra, Intel; Eric Multanen, Intel; Danny Zhou, Intel and Rajeev Koodli, Intel
There is an ever-increasing pressure on networks to perform and manage greater workloads with increase in cloud, mobility, and Internet of Things. Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is an open source project comprising a set of libraries and drivers for fast packet processing. There is an effort to accelerate OpenVSwitch (OVS) using DPDK. In order for OpenStack orchestrator to make use of DPDK acceleration, ODL needs to find the capabilities of OVS and pass the required port type information to OpenStack. ODL will take in commands from OpenStack for DPDK accelerated vSwitch and pass it to OVS. This presentation talks about what hooks are provided in ODL to enable support of DPDK accelerated vSwitch. The talk will also provide an overview of implementation of the emerging Service Function Chaining (SFC) using DPDK. The presentation will include our experiences in the implementation of the SFC classifier, SFF and illustrative SFs, and the VxLAN-GPE+NSH processing using the Open Virtual Switch (OVS) with DPDK-netdev capability. We intend to share preliminary performance results and future work on hardware offloads.

Linking IoT and SDN: How ODL can play a key role in IoT - Lionel Florit, Cisco; Jan Medved, Cisco and John Burns, Cisco
What governs the IoT/IoE space currently is a state of fragmentation: deployments focus on verticals implemented in silos. A way to move from today's fragmented intranets of things to the Internet of Everything is by turning the network into a horizontal application enablement platform.

The IoTDM project started in November last year aims at creating a distributed IoT data collection system, running on ODL, which enables authorized applications to retrieve data supplied by any device through open semantic abstractions. IoTDM provides the functions of the data exchange capability in the M2M/IoT service layer. Further, IoTDM being located on an SDN controller gives us unprecedented access to the network. This presentation will address the background of the project, what we have implemented in ODL and the next steps for this project.

Creating Portable SDN Applications for OpenDaylight - Mathieu Lemay, Inocybe
This talk goes over how to use Intent based compiler prototype from the ONF to write SDN applications that are portable across different controller runtimes. The intents and applications provide the ability to describe high level network logic that can be enforced and executed by a proper controller runtime. This specific runtime has been implement within OpenDaylight by the newly created Network Intent Composition and it advertises the proper primitives required to express application-level functionality. The applications can be written in any orthogonal domain specific languages which also makes it portable across other SDN controllers such as ONOS or Ryu. This runtime also makes it easier to write applications without directly interacting with wire protocols like OpenFlow or Netconf.

LISP Flow Mapping for SDN and NFV – Lithium Release - Vina Ermagan, Cisco, Lori Jakab, Cisco and Alberto Rodriguez-Natal, BarcelonaTech-UPC
Locator/ID Separation Protocol (available on Linux, OpenWRT, Android) is a next generation routing architecture with native support for scalable network overlays. LISP consists of: (1) a data plane that is capable of L2 and L3 encapsulation, (2) a decoupled and distributed control plane that stores and serves the mappings of virtual-to-physical network addresses including associated forwarding policies. LISP control plane enables dynamic, on-demand, multi-transport network overlays with native support for mobility and multi-homing. Network programmability is achieved by programming forwarding policies, such as service chaining and traffic engineering in the mapping database. Data plane nodes can then fetch and enforce these policies on demand as new flows arrive. This presentation explains how OpenStack and ODL LISP service can be used together to enable advanced SDN and NFV use cases.

Troubleshooting of OpenDaylight using Log Analyzer - Prem Sankar G and Deepthi VV, Ericsson
Opendaylight is a critical component, the brain of any SDN solution and hence it is important to monitor the applications and track the changes happening on the controller. ODL has extensive logging mechanism and admin can get to know the health of the application and networking tracking the logs. The only issue being that ODL has many components and analyzing in an effective way is a challenge. Running controller in a clustered environment further complicates the situation. This talk covers the current issues and provides a solution to overcome these issues, presents new set of possibilities using opensource log analyzer.
Advantage and use case includes, but not limited to:
-Admins can start analyzing the SDN applications impact on the system.
-Early detection of conflicts in the flows programmed by various applications
-ODL system monitoring and detection of bottlenecks

End-to-End SLA Enforcement for Application Flows - Girish Moodalbail, Oracle and Venugopal Iyer, Oracle
Today's cloud is bound to have a diverse physical and virtual network infrastructure since no single vendor has solution to satisfy all cloud requirements. Diversity is good as there is no vendor lock-in. However, it brings along with it not only the issues of managing, configuring, provisioning, and programming diverse entities but also the bigger issue of identifying application flows, associating them with SLAs such as bandwidth and priorities, and enforcing these SLAs end-to-end, i.e., on-every-hop from compute nodes through the network fabric.

In this talk we will describe as to how we have solved the above issues using Solaris ODL and OpenStack. We will describe how we are leveraging some of the innovations in Solaris to identify business critical application flows and push the SLA requirements for these flows through a SDN application written to existing and new ODL NB APIs.

What is the Intent Anyway - Chris Janz, Ciena and Raphael Amorim, HP
The network intent composition (NIC) project's goal is to provide a simple, consistent interface into an SDN controller based on standards coming from the ONF. By maintaining and intent based interface the SDN controller is afforded the flexibility to provide that intent using the entire network context and thus being able to provide overall network configuration.

This session will cover what is attempting to be accomplished by the network intent composition project, its current status, and hopefully, some examples. This session will also provide time for the audience to pose questions to better understand the project.

You Can Keep Your Firewalls (if you want to) - John Sobanski, Solers Inc.
John Sobanski demonstrates how ODL can augment (not replace) your current architecture to optimize performance, maximize uptime and streamline operations. John Sobanski describes a proof of concept project that implements the Service Function Chaining (SFC) service on the ODL controller platform, demonstrating a northbound service agnostic of the southbound interfaces to the Network Elements (NE). The presentation begins with a definition of the problem space, that legacy (ossified) network technologies tie network services to hardware and topology. John depicts a real world scenario, a multi-data center service flow that experiences redundant (and un-necessary) firewall and deep packet inspection (DPI) at each data center hop, which injects severe latency into the segment round trip time. John uses ODL to remove redundancies with both the SFC service and custom RESTCONF API calls.

How to Manage Multiple Network Technologies by Single OpenDaylight Controller - Ryo Kurahashi, NEC & Okinawa Open Laboratory and Takashi Torii, NEC & Okinawa Open Laboratory
In this presentation, we will explain about our PoC design and experience about managing multiple network technologies by single OpenDaylight Controller. It means that, for example, legacy network and OpenFlow network can be managed as a single virtual network domain. By current network management technology, mixing the legacy and OpenFlow network is not simple. These are separately managed, and the boundary of them are manually configured.
It is a major pain for user to deploy SDN technology to commercial existing system.
We have been testing and validating the mixed network management by using OpenDaylight, and success to make the reference system.
In this presentation, we introduce our PoC, and share the knowledge we get through the our experience.

YANG User Interface in OpenDaylight - Chris Metz, Cisco
YANG models express services, networks and devices controlled below ODL and REST APIs exposed to applications above. Most applications employ a user interface (UI) thus requiring the developer to be familiar with YANG, REST and UI frameworks.

In this presentation, Juraj Sebin will explain and demonstrate the YANG UI tool. It addresses a developer need for a simple tool to drive model-driven RESTCONF API calls from a DLUX UI. The YANG UI tool takes models loaded into the controller and generates a simple UI. Entering values at the prompts enables the developer to perform a configuration or operational dialog with the platform. The developer no longer needs to associate YANG models with REST API calls. The use of REST POST utilities is minimized, as is the need to handcraft an initial UI. The YANG UI tool will simplify ODL application development.

Moving forward, Software Defined Infrastructure needs to enable programmatic automation of policies dynamically and transparently including ability to enforce, audit and monitor. The abstract “high level” policy directives need to be translated and enforced at lower infrastructure API’s. As a community, we need to develop ability to 1) programmatically express high level policies 2) define right level of abstractions and granularity for expressing the policies and 3) create a framework for a modular vendor agnostic translation services for each of the infrastructure API’s.

Code Hygiene - Things we need to do to keep our codebase in good working order - Phil Robb
This discussion has several subtopics. Specific ones I would like to address include:
  • Updating the versions of all of our 3rd party dependencies to current, or near-current versions. I.e. we have many 3rd party dependencies that are quite old. This exposes us to potential vulnerabilities that may exist in these older versions but were fixed in newer versions. In some cases, the licensing of newer versions align better with the EPL license used by OpenDaylight, hence the newer version is preferred.
  • Ensuring all appropriate files have a proper copyright/license header. About this time each release cycle, we look at the code base to see if there are any files that should contain a copyright/license header but do not. We will be performing this task in the near future.
  • Ensure that we have source files for all third party dependencies, and that we are creating source jars for all code (in-house and 3rd party) that are easily downloaded along with the binaries.
  • Logging and error reporting normalization

LISP xTR as an approach to the "Overlay Layer" - Ed Warnicke, Florin Coras, and Vina Ermangan
Having an option for a common mechanism to handle overlays as a distinct layer presents huge advantages (as projects providing other layers are removed from managing it). The LISP mapping service mechanism is a mature, deployed solution for mapping various 'keys' (DST IP, (SRC,DST) IP, etc) to overlay topologies (for any sort of encap). In order to enable this as a 'layer' in the pipeline, we need to have an implementation of a LISP xTR. A LISP xTR (ingress/egress tunneling router) is simply something that does a lookup in the LISP mapping service and places flows onto the correct overlay topology. It is envisioned to provide the overlay layer to be used by other services (like Policy and SFC).

Network Intent Composition - Raphael Amorim
The Intent API is used by applications to specify desired network behavior and provide an easy way for application writers to program the network without worry about network details and co-existence of other applications . This allows decoupling of applications from physical network changes and allow them not to react, or even be aware, of changes in the network topology or technology. This reduces the potential for conflict between multiple application and simplifies the life of SDN application developers. We will demo 2 client applications that have some conflicts of interest. You will see NIC in action and how it resolves/handles conflicts without application developer changing the application.

We're going to talk about some of the key Be features we're planning to have and prioritize them.

Transactionality for Netconf mounts - Wojciech Dec
The Data Broker API used by Netconf mounted devices abstracts away some key characteristics of Netconf like the two phase commit. I.e. It appears not possible to send a candidate config to a device, validate it, and only after that commit it. This prevents a basic form of multi-device configuration transactionality from being realized by ODL. The goal of this discussion is to discuss the basic and more advanced use-cases and form a design/plan for tackling them.

More Modular Release Process - Colin Dixon and Devin Avery
Can we move away from a monolithic release where everything needs to be upgraded to upgrade even one bundle? Note that this is related to, but not the same as continuous release.
  • One approach to this would be as simple as having all projects in OpenDaylight test against both the current released version of their dependencies and the previous one, e.g., during Beryllium development test against Beryllium master and Lithium on stable/lithium. This would mean that you could (theoretically) pick and choose which features/bundles to load from which release.
  • As part of this, it would be interesting to also talk about doing a faster release cadence, e.g., 3-4+ releases per year instead of once every 7-8 months.

IPv4/v6 Longest Prefix Match Support in MD-SAL - TBD
Since OpenDaylight is a *network* controller, it would be nice to have support for longest *prefix* match in MD-SAL: being able to pass an IPv4 or IPv6 prefix as the node for a read operation, and getting back a reply with a node that is the longest prefix match for the requested node. Something like an L3 routing table implementation. I think that apart from the lispflowmapping project, the BGPCEP project would also benefit, and probably others. Example: PUT a node under /restconf/config/lfm-mapping-database:mapping-database/instance-id/0/mapping/ipv4:192.0.2.1%2f24/ then, if no other such nodes exists, GETting /restconf/config/lfm-mapping-database:mapping-database/instance-id/0/mapping/ipv4:192.0.2.1%2f32/ should return whatever was stored under the first node.

ODL User-Stories - Dave Neary
User stories are brief descriptions of high-level tasks that people *should* be able to do with your software. The goal is to document tasks from the user's point of view, and then break that high-level goal down into sub-tasks that people need to be able to do. The goal, at the end, is to identify gaps in the software, prioritise feature additions based on user story priority, and use user stories as a basis for tutorials, documentation, and usability improvements. For example, one user story might be "use OpenDaylight as a netvirt solution for a private cloud", and that might break down into sub-tasks like "the user wants to create a new network endpoint, and add it to a virtual subnet", "the cloud admin wants to run the internal network as IPv6 only", etc. The goal of this session is to communicate the work which has been started around user stories, and recruit others to help define and elaborate more.
