We have been starting to explore openflow on Linux and since most of our network infrastructure is pfsense I was just curious if openflow was on the radar of anyone here (user or developer). I know it still seems kind of academic, but with IBM bringing out boxes like http://www.openflow.org/wp/2011/11/10gigabit-switch-from-ibm/ I figure it's starting to get traction.
I see work has been done on porting openflow to FreeBSD 1, but I have no idea how far along that work is.
I would assume nobody here cares yet since I could only find one post that mentioned openflow 2.
I have setup a network using openvswitch/Linux and floodlight. Its pretty interesting technology…

Yes, it's on the radar. ;D
Luigi Rizzo has openvswitch running over netmap (his invention).
And I'm considering making a version of pfSense for openflow.
