Certification Overview

The Open Networking Foundation is a user-driven organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Open SDN through open standards development. To accomplish this goal, ONF offers product and skills certifications to create and promote an ecosystem to deliver SDN products and SDN based services.

The OpenFlow® Conformance Testing Program gives networking vendors an opportunity to demonstrate product compliance with the OpenFlow® specification. Independent, ONF-approved testing labs that follow test procedures developed within ONF certify compliance with the OpenFlow® specification for hardware such as switches and routers, as well as the network software.
