InCNTRE's SDN Interoperability Lab is a neutral, third party facility that encourages the development and adoption of standards-based Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies such as OpenFlow. The lab works to achieve its mission by:

  • Developing testing tools, methodologies, and procedures
  • Supporting OpenFlow events and showcases
  • Contributing to Open Networking Foundation (ONF) working groups
  • Providing educational opportunities

InCNTRE operates the lab in collaboration with IU's Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC) on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus in downtown Indianapolis.
