extensibilityThe Extensibility working group is developing extensions to the OpenFlow™ switch protocol that best take advantage of the latest innovations to promote OpenFlow Standard adoption.


  • Consolidated existing protocol versions, releasing versions 1.0.1 and 1.3.1 that clarify and fix respectively 1.0 and 1.3.0, and were approved by the board

Goals for 2013

  • Prototype every new feature added to the protocol
  • OpenFlow 1.3.X : long term support
  • ONF extensions for 1.3.X : new features
  • OpenFlow 1.4/1.5 : extensibility, incremental improvements
  • OpenFlow 1.0.X : no work planned
