In SDN, there will be controller(Generally!). So, controller uses the OpenFlow protocol to send the Flows to OVS(Control Plane). Once OVS got the Intelligence, forwards the packets according to that. But in Openstack, there is no controller and how switch got the flows(Control Plane) when VM is launched and plugged to int-br in computer node?
