Project Description: The ENGLEWOOD project aims to develop a set of software modules that can be used to prototype, test, validate and facilitate the deployment of standard ONF Transport APIs, e.g., defined by ONF OTWG, in SDN environments where different platforms (either open-source, e.g., ONOS or ODL, or proprietary platforms, including legacy NMSes) are used.
The project has four main threads of activities:
- Develop a Platform Abstraction Layer (PAL) allowing to support Transport API over any existing controller platform
- Develop of a network emulator, based on message and event generator, to support simple testing of Transport API code
- Develop simple example APPs to test and demonstrate Transport API capabilities
- Integration work to verify correct operation and standard compliance for APPs and controllers
