Hardware Abstraction Layer for non-OpenFlow capable devices

OpenFlow is now considered a leading protocol for future production network control, yet not all domains come with compatible supporting frameworks. This presentation shows a way forward for adding SDN-based control on network devices that are not compatible with OpenFlow and introduces a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for non-OpenFlow capable devices that addresses this problem and discuss its advantages. In particular, the presentation explains how a HAL-based architecture can support different classes of network devices.
