Information About OpenFlow
OpenFlow is a specification from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) that defines a flow-based forwarding infrastructure (L2-L4 Ethernet switch model) and a standardized application programmatic interface (protocol definition) to learn capabilities, add and remove flow control entries and request statistics. OpenFlow allows a controller to direct the forwarding functions of a switch through a secure channel.
Cisco ONE Platform Kit provides the ability to host Cisco internal or external third party applications on or adjacent to Cisco’s networking infrastructure, and enables programmatic access to networking services in a controlled and consistent manner. When hosting applications on Cisco routers or switches, the applications will run within a virtual-machine or container.
