[openflow-discuss] OpenFlow Deployment

Thank you for replying Ali. Actually, I want to implement OpenFlow on a small scale in a university campus environment. The scenario is such that I have all the network infrastructure available and the networks department is agreeing to provide me an uplink from their system so that I may use it to build whatever testing network I require.
So, my objective is that I want to use OpenFlow to manipulate the network resources for a few test devices such that e.g. based on some rules which I'll define using ontologies I give more bandwidth to one user and less to another.
Thus, I just want to set up a small test environment to test this. 

Please, if you could help me out on this so that I may start procuring equipment for the experiment asap.

Thank you,

Hi Basma,

The number and types of devices you need really depend on what you want to do. If you describe your objective we may be able to help you.
