The OpenFlow Consortium was a collaborative group of university researchers and network administrators that developed the original specification for the OpenFlow protocol. The Consortium, which was founded in 2008, included members from around the world. The project was led by representatives from Stanford and Berkeley, and hosted at Stanford.

The initial purpose of the Consortium was to improve network functioning for research experiments. To that end, they developed OpenFlow to enable programmatic access to switch forwarding tables. Development of the protocol has since expanded beyond the academic environment. The OpenFlow project is now overseen by the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).
