Software Defined Networking (SDN) – OpenFlow and OVSDB connection

This article is based on OpenFlow and OVSDB connection between SDN controller and Openflow based switches and provides details on connection lifecycle. We will use open source SDN controller i.e. Opendaylight (ODL) Carbon release and Openflow virtual switch i.e. OpenVswitch (OVS) version 2.6.0 to describe about OVSDB and Openflow connection.
