I figured, why not, let’s google CAPWAP and OpenFlow together and see what comes up. No surprise, you see the post from Matt Davy at IU who was drawing a similar comparison to OF/SDN to CAPWAP/WLAN, my recent blog, Ivan’s blog, Martin’s blog, and then finally the reason why I’m writing this – I saw a link to openvswitch.org that talked about building support for CAPWAP into the open vswitch. Interesting, right? Well, to me it is! So after digging further, it looks like Jesse Gross (from Nicira, the company who does much of the development work on open vswitch) had some comments in the commit log for this feature.
