Overview

 

Path Computation Engine for OpenFlow (PCE-OF) is a new OpenDaylight (ODL) application that applies policy-based path computation and programming that provides a level of “smart” traffic engineering to OpenFlow networks. OpenFlow is a protocol for programming flow tables on switches.

 

ODL is a collaborative, open-source project used to advance software-defined networking (SDN). OpenDaylight is a community-led, industry-supported framework consisting of code and blueprints. Using this framework, you can accelerate process adoption, foster innovation, reduce risk, and create a more transparent approach to SDN. OpenDaylight can be a core component within any SDN architecture. Building on 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.
