Moving on from the traditional, configuration-driven network, OpenFlow paves the way to an open, centrally programmable structure providing standard interfaces between the controller and the actual packet forwarding entity.

This book has been divided into two parts to provide you with everything you need to know to develop either an OpenFlow switch or an OpenFlow controller. Starting from the basics of establishing communication channels between the controller and switch, this book explains in detail about the various tables, table operations, and switch and controller procedures.
