Resolution
  • Add support for OpenFlow version 1.3 by upgrading to OpenVswitch (OVS) version 2.1.
  • The OpenFlow Group table is supported for MPLS flows only. Otherwise, only a single table is supported in this release.
  • L2VPN with Static Pseudowire and Static MPLS Tunnel. (via OpenFlow Vendor Extensions)
  • MPLS Label Switching (for pseudowire only).
  • Forward between Normal VLAN/VMAN and OpenFlow Pseudowires using standard Ethernet flooding and learning.
  • Enable OpenFlow controlled traffic and normal traffic to be sent and received on the same VLAN/port.
  • Add a new global “hybrid” mode operation to allow the switch to operate as a normal switch, but also allow a controller to install flows that can affect any port and/or any VLAN.
  • Continue to support OpenFlow capabilities and scale that exist in EXOS 15.4.1.
