  • Fully dynamic runtime standardized BGP configuration

  • Read-only access to all RIBs

  • Read-write programmable RIBs

  • Read-only reachability/linkstate topology view

PCEP Plugin

The OpenDaylight Path Computation Element Communication Protocol (PCEP) plugin provides all basic service units necessary to build-up a PCE-based controller. Defined by RFC 8231, PCEP offers LSP management functionality for Active Stateful PCE, which is the cornerstone for majority of PCE-enabled SDN solutions. It consists of the following components:

  • Protocol library

  • PCEP session handling

  • Stateful PCE LSP-DB

  • Active Stateful PCE LSP Operations
