Open Overlay Router
OpenOverlayRouter is a rename of the LISPmob project
The OpenOverlayRouter (OOR) project aims to deliver a flexible and modular open-source implementation to deploy programmable overlay networks. It leverages on encapsulating overlay-specific packets into underlay-compatible packets at the edges of the instantiated overlay and route them over the physical underlying infrastructure. In order to do so, it maps overlay identifiers to underlay locators and keeps those mappings updated over time. In the current version, OOR uses the LISP protocol for the control-plane (e.g. mapping retrieval and updating, etc), NETCONF/YANG for the management-plane (e.g. overlay identifiers provisioning, etc) and can use both LISP and VXLAN-GPE headers for encapsulation.
