Real-life deployments are always challenging. Usually the story goes like this. You have your network devices to manage, a controller that usually provides a normalized interface for your network. Great, and now what? Next logical step is to integrate SDN controller with overlaying management tools and systems. This is easy job, if the controller uses RESTCONF interface, described by YANG models. There is a catch, though. Clients need to understand the semantics of the XML, Read more…

Migration of ONAP SDNC

Migration of ODL based application into lighty.io can be really straightforward. But sometimes you have to do more steps in order to run your application in lighty.io. Especially if your application is using OSGI/Karaf specific code. For example when it’s using BundleContext to get registered OSGI services in runtime (what is bad practice in ODL anyway). This is the case in ONAP SDNC project. In this article we will focus on this kind of problems Read more…

It is on top of this layer, that the OpenDaylight project family builds other very interesting projects, that are practical for SDN application development. Read more…
