Orange to lead the BGPVPN Openstack Project

Orange proposal to create a new project in Openstack/Neutron, to ease the interconnection of Neutron networks to IPVPN, has been accepeted during last Openstack Summit.

The project, named BGPVPN, is led by Orange and defines a new API usable by external SDN Controllers (OpenContrail, OpenDayLight, Midokura, Nuage…) :

Each Openstack API must have a reference implementation, which is light and easily usable for the Continuous Integration. Accordingly, Orange has developed Bagpipe, the Opensource BGP speaker.
