Description : OpenStack virtual network service - BGP VPN
Neutron provides an API to dynamically request and configure virtual networks.
These networks connect "interfaces" from other OpenStack services (such as
vNICs from Nova VMs). The Neutron API supports extensions to provide advanced
network capabilities, including QoS, ACLs, and network monitoring.
This package provides an API and Framework to interconnect BGP/MPLS VPNs to
Openstack Neutron networks, routers and ports.
The Border Gateway Protocol and Multi-Protocol Label Switching are widely used
Wide Area Networking technologies. The primary purpose of this project is to
allow attachment of Neutron networks and/or routers to VPNs built in carrier
provided WANs using these standard protocols. An additional purpose of this
project is to enable the use of these technologies within the Neutron
A vendor-neutral API and data model are provided such that multiple SDN
controllers may be used as backends, while offering the same tenant facing
API. A reference implementation working along with Neutron reference drivers
is also provided.
Note: this package is being used in puppet-openstack, and therefore, I must
make it available in Debian so that puppet-openstack CI can gate with it.
