Even I'm in search of some place to learn how to configure routerboard openflow. I have rb750gl with routeros 6.32.3. If you had found any place, kindly ping me. thanking you.I've been working with openflow since since the very early days, ~2009. I recently picked up some Mikrotik gear to start replacing a lot of old pfsense stuff. I'd like to start using the OpenFlow offering, but would really like to see something newer than 1.0.
How is OpenFlow being implemented? Is it OVS based?
Is there any possibility of adding a modern OpenvSwitch build to Mikrotik RouterOS? The benefits of this seem pretty obvious to me (although admittedly I am biased). Allowing for OpenFlow 1.3 would be pretty nice, even if it is just the required options to support the standard. I can help with the implementation and testing if that is a possibility. Again, I'm pretty new to RouterOS and don't have the best communication paths, so if there are better places to ask I'm happy to do so.

+1 to implement newer versions of OpenFlow...SDN is getting to be more and more mainstream and this would put MIkroTik in a great position to be a low cost SDN router.All the described features are in our todo list, thank you for raising the questions. At the moment there is no specific timeframe, when features will be available.
My guess is that since OpenFlow has mostly being leveraged in datancenters and enterprise networks that at this point that the ROS offering is dying a slow, uneventful death.Any news about OpenFlow 1.3 or higher?All the described features are in our todo list, thank you for raising the questions. At the moment there is no specific timeframe, when features will be available.
Any update? If this is ever going to happen it needs to meet a handful of requirements to be usable, most of which are not well documented. For reference, the faucet foundation has a set of tests that hardware needs to pass to conform to an actual useful implementation of OF 1.3 (multi table support being a hard requirement that many vendors happily ignore). If using OVS as a base, full implementation of >2.1 should work. See https://github.com/faucetsdn/faucet for more details.Please MikroTik staff, any news about OpenFlow 1.3 or higher? I only need a date: 2018, 2019, 2020, ... SDN is here and we need to know if we can go forward with MikroTik or change to another manufacturer. Thanks.
