The Linux Foundation today is announcing a new Collaborative Project: OpenDaylight.

This is a community-led, industry-supported open source framework on top of which companies, organizations and individuals will build commercial products and services for software-defined networking (SDN).

This is about code at the infrastructure level to help shape the future of SDN and every major player is in. This diversity is an early sign of a healthy community and the size and expertise of these companies demonstrate industry-scale support.
