open networking foundation (ONF)

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a user-oriented organization dedicated to the adoption and promotion of Software Defined Networking( SDN) and developing open standards for it.

The approach of SDN networking differs from conventional approaches in that the physical network is decoupled from the network control and this is done by software. This allows extremely dynamic, manageable and cost-effective networks to be built.

By implementing Software Defined Networks using open standards, networks of extraordinary dynamism are created. The Open Networking Foundation aims for an open, collaborative development process that originates with end users. One standard developed by the ONF is OpenFlow, another is the OpenFlow Configuration and Management Protocol.
