Cocoon finally out: Professor Marco Canini together with VMware, Samsung, and Microsoft craft the ultimate SDN ally

Cocoon was developed by Prof. Marco Canini in a joined effort with Leonid Ryzhyk, project leader at VMware, along with researchers at Samsung, Microsoft, and other industry players.  Compared to previous existing verification tools, Cocoon gives to designers the ability to specify a high-level view of the network. In this way, it is possible to capture the correct network behavior verifying that the network implementation is equivalent to the high-level specification.
