Basically, right. ONF oversees the OpenFlow protocol standard that lets controllers talk to routers and switches.
Open Daylight will develop open source code for controllers and a layer or two below that--essentially the sort of thing a lot of other companies have been trying to do as revenue products.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
