Juniper provides OpenContrail plug-in for OpenDaylight controller

Juniper Networks has offered a plug-in for its OpenContrail controller to the OpenDaylight Project. According to a description on the OpenDaylight wiki log, the plug-in "will provide the integration/interworking between the OpenDaylight controller and OpenContrail." Specifically, the OpenContrail plug-in will enable OpenDaylight to make use of OpenContrail's networking capabilities such as cloud networking as well as network function virtualization (NFV) in service provider networks and service chaining for enterprise deployments. The OpenDaylight Project, a vendor community-driven effort announced in April 2013, was created to facilitate an open-source framework, including code and architecture, for a common SDN platform. SDN Central noted that although Juniper is an OpenDaylight platinum member, it has participated a lot in the open-source effort. For more, see this article.
