IP control table pipeline

A single consolidated policy table combines “IP Match Policy Table”, “IP Miss Policy Table” and “Non-IP Policy table”. “Policy table” in IP control table mode allows the controller to match on L3 match, L3 miss and L3 ignore. OpenFlow controller must program rules into policy table with metadata to achieve functionality. Table 3 illustrates the values of metadata and metadata mask that must be programmed.
