OpenDayLight is a collaborative, open-source project used to advance Software-Defined Networking (SDN). OpenDayLight is a community-led, open, industry-supported framework consisting of code and blueprints. Using this framework, you can accelerate process adoption, foster new innovation, reduce risk, and create a more transparent approach to SDN. OpenDayLight can be a core component within any SDN architecture. Building upon an open-source SDN and NFV controllers enables users to reduce operational complexity, extend the life of their existing infrastructure hardware, and enable new services and capabilities only available with SDN.
