Thanks for the answer and link.  I'll have to read some more about OpenFlow.  The potential increase in  network efficiency by separating packet switching and management is intriguing.  I would love to be able to achieve significantly higher percentage network usage, so that usable network capacity could be increased without actually increasing capacity!  I will have to do some more reading on this.  Thanks again!
