OpenDaylight is currently one of the most important open source projects in data communication. It made a revolution in network technologies which cater to the ever-growing needs in data communication as well as for the internet of the future. The aim is to create a platform suitable for implementing SDN and NFV while keeping them open source, so that the technology used in the future will allow for reliable and comfortable data communication. This shapes how the internet will be working at the global level.
Technically, the ODL controller is a broad platform for implementing software-defined networking. It stands between network devices and SDN applications. In the higher logic, it communicates with SDN/NFV devices. These define a virtual network through which ODL configures, manages, and programs real devices in the lower logic. The current version of ODL supports NETCONF/YANG, OpenFlow and BGP-LS, as well as PCEP, protocols.
