Getting Started with OpenDaylight

Heard about OpenDaylight and SDN? Ready to get your feet wet and start kicking the tires with an OpenDaylight installation? This session provides a brief intro to Software Defined Networking (SDN) in general, and more specifically to OpenDaylight, an open source platform for programmable SDN. After providing a high level overview of the architecture, the session goes on to show you how to deploy OpenDaylight and interact with it through the CLI and graphical tools. You will learn how to configure various options and enable/disable various features, and how to check the logs to verify things are working as planned and trouble shoot things when they are not. Lastly we show you how to interact with OpenDaylight through its northbound APIs for network aware applications and southbound plugins to physical and virtual network elements.
