Based on this Network/VM information OpenFlow Controller can add flows to these OF-Switches based on the shared Network/Port Information. This use case is for Data Centre Networks where OpenStack Controller deployed for SDN Network.

There is already integration with Ryu  which has been upstream as a Quantum/Neutron plugin since Folsom. And we are currently working on integration with OpenDaylight  as well. Both of those are capable of being OpenFlow controllers. Can you explain how your design is different or could build upon either of those?
