OpenDaylight Foundation aims to shape the future of Software Defined Networking (SDN)

Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin has said that the OpenDaylight Project represents “a rare gathering of leaders in the technology ecosystem who have decided to combine efforts in a common platform in order to innovate faster and build better products for their customers.” And with founding members like Brocade, Cisco, Citrix, Ericsson, IBM, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, NEC, Red Hat, and VMWare all offering software and engineering resources to help the project succeed, it’s easy to see how the OpenDaylight Project has made so much progress in such a short period of time. The project is on track to deliver its first code release later this year.
