The Faucet Foundation has been created to support the national and global efforts to advance software defined networking.

The foundation board is representative of the technology industry, research and education networks and universities, all of which have contributed to the continued growth and development of SDN/Faucet in their respective areas. The board are currently establishing future plans for the foundation and will communicate the details on the Foundation website, initial planning outcomes and wider community involvement as they are confirmed.
