Virtual Switch

Floodlight Virtual Switch (formerly known as Virtual Network Filter) is a network virtualization application that runs on the Floodlight Controller, an open SDN platform. It is a simple layer 2 (MAC) based network virtualization, which allows for creation of multiple logical layer 2 networks in a single layer 2 domain.  This module can be used standalone, or as a back-end for OpenStack Quantum.
