Nowadays, several devices supporting OpenFlow versions beyond 1.0 are available on the market.

However, existent OpenFlow testbeds like OFELIA do not provide support for such devices, therefore it is hard for the research community to explore and test the newest functionalities of the protocol in realistic environments. This paper gives a short overview of two different architectures investigated within the FP7 ALIEN project that both aim to overcome this limitation within the OFELIA experimental facility.
