OpenFlow in Europe: Linking Infrastructure and Applications


OFELIA is a collaborative project within the European Commission’s FP7 ICT Work Programme.

The project creates a unique experimental facility that allows researchers to not only experiment “on” a test network but to control and extend the network itself precisely and dynamically. The OFELIA facility is based on OpenFlow, a currently emerging networking technology that allows virtualization and control of the network environment through secure and standardized interfaces.
