SDN switch and controller interoperability

The rapidly evolving SDN ecosystem has given rise to a number of SDN switches and controllers that each expose a slightly different set of capabilities.

The SDN switch interoperability program benefits switch vendors who can ensure that their OpenFlow-enabled or traditional switch products can inter-operate with all major SDN controller implementations. All the key open source controllers as well as vendor specific controllers are represented in the interoperability testbed.

The SDN controller interoperability program helps the SDN controller vendors ensure that their controller software can inter-operate with all major switch implementations and pipelines.

Customers will get a comprehensive interoperability test report from CNLabs indicating gaps in identified test scenarios. CNLabs addresses, on a case-to-case basis, interoperability reports for specific vendor products that are not part of our reference testbeds.
