Open flow is an open standard that enables researchers to run experimental protocols in the campus networks we use every day. Open flow is added as a feature to commercial Ethernet switches, routers and wireless access points and provides a standardized hook to allow researchers to run experiments, without requiring vendors to expose the internal workings of their network devices. We have conducted experimental software results of network parameters of Wireless Mesh Network and Open Flow Network and analyzed them. The routing protocols selected for this work are OLSR (proactive) and AODV (reactive). The comparison between the two networks is based on key parameters such as Packets Sent to Received Ratio and Throughput.
