01-10 (August 2016)Basically, in NS3 we have an OpenFlow switch model that does not speak the actual switch - controller protocol, but instead, it talks to a sole object that implements the controller behavior. There have been discussions around fixing this so that one may run a controller inside a VM, connect the VM to an NS3 node using a tap-bridge device, and then run NS3 in emulation mode. This would allow switching the controller logic from simulation to emulation and then to actual ordeal. In Mininet-based systems, the CPU or data transfer capacity accessible on a solitary server can't (presently) be surpass. Non-Linux-compatible OpenFlow switches or applications likewise can't (at present) be run; in any case, this has not been a noteworthy issue by and by..
