FAUCET @ OpenStack 2017

https://www.openstack.org/summit/boston-2017/summit-schedule/events/18638/open-vswitch-lightning-talks

Joe Stringer will present "Deploying an OVS-based feature switch in 5 minutes or less", a demo showing how to quickly deploy the Faucet open source OpenFlow controller as a drop-in replacement for a network switch.

Joe Stringer will present "Cyber RFP!" about the strategy that the Faucet open source OpenFlow controller uses to validate a switch's OpenFlow support using a comprehensive, easy to use testsuite.

Inter VLAN routing

FAUCET now supports routing between VLANs, in a way similar to non-SDN switch/routers

In this example, hosts in VLAN 100 can reach hosts in VLAN 200, using FAUCET as a gateway (FAUCET of course presents a gateway in each VLAN).

In the future, FAUCET will allow you to configure routing between just the VLANs you specify, rather than all or none.

vlans:
    100:
        faucet_vips: ["10.100.0.254/24"]
    200:
        faucet_vips: ["10.200.0.254/24"]
routers:
    router-1:
        vlans: [100, 200]
dps:
    faucet-1:
        hardware: "Open vSwitch"
        dp_id: 0x1
        interfaces:
            1:
                native_vlan: 100
            2:
                native_vlan: 200
