Hi Trina,
I am not really sure that I understand your question. The Quantum 
service marshals the API's to a plugin. The plugin is responsible for 
providing the virtual network service. In the case of the OVS plugin the 
ovs_quantum_plugin.py will treat the API calls. That means that it will 
enable the user to perform CRUD operations on the following: networks, 
subnets and ports. In order to do this it stores the values in a 
persistent database.
The plugin has a layer 2 agent that performs the actual network 
Hope that this help.
