The ONF is about to put out a call for a chip advisory board as part of its effort to bolster technical work on its road map. It aims to gather before the end of the year a mix of merchant and ASIC developers to provide guidance on future generations of the OpenFlow protocol.
In addition, ONF announced:
It will create conformance tests and a formal certification process for OpenFlow that will be run through independent labs.
It has launched an optical transport working group driven by telecom providers.
It is starting a working group to provide guidelines on how to migrate to OpenFlow networks.
It named Rick Bauer to the new position of technical program manager

The group also announced a contest to spur work on OpenFlow drivers.
Rick, thanks for this slide show, very interesting to the say the least. It looks like it is not just he IoT but exploding media content is finally creating a radical re-think of networking on the whole.
