Dear Andreas,

thank you very much for your interest in Netkit and in this matter.
At present, Netkit does not include components to experiment with OpenFlow like, e.g., switches (Open vSwitch, CPqD, etc.) or controllers (POX, Ryu, etc.).
This is something we are interested in considering but, for the moment, the best option is to use Mininet [2] or interact directly with OpenFlow-capable software components using tools like ovs-ofctl or dpctl.

In case you are interested, we are maintaining some OpenFlow-related documentation that can help in carrying on experiments with Software Defined Networks. You can find it here: http://tocai.dia.uniroma3.it/compunet-wiki/index.php/Category:Software_Defined_Networks

Best regards,
