The Internet eXchange Points (IXP) are essential for the Internet evolution as they empower high bandwidth low latency and inexpensive local traffic peering as opposed to transit traffic. OpenFlow SDN enables network programmability to control network behavior via open interfaces, as opposed to the legacy closed-box solutions and proprietary-defined interfaces.
This presentation is about the migration of the TouIX from a traditional to a full OpenFlow IXP. A quick view of the architecture choices to eliminate broadcast traffic to reduce complexity are discussed and how switches have been selected and programmed with the TouSIX-Manager. The TouSIX-Manager have been developed internally to give direct monitoring and programmability to the members through web interfaces.
TouIX is a non-profit neutral Internet eXchange Point organization founded in 2005. It provides an interconnected network infrastructure at 4 PoPs around the city of Toulouse and the Paris FranceIX and LyonIX IXPs.
He designed and deployed the first European OpenFlow IXP fabric for the TouIX. He started his career in 1996 working for Club-Internet.fr follow by Cisco, Vivendi Universal, Credit Suisse First Boston, Airbus/Dimension Data, Force10 Networks, and Dell. He is a Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert Emeritus #16651. He has been involved in the NetFPGA project for a few years, and his thesis was about Open Source OpenFlow SDN for IXPs.
