VMware Integrated OpenStack supports a Neutron network with a transparent VLAN extension.

The VLAN extension allows you to create a trunked network so that VMs or VNFs can send tagged packets on the Neutron network.


This extension supports the provider network on the VDS network plugin and with the tenant network on the NSX-vSphere plugin.


Use the network create command to create the VLAN extension.

--disable-port-security <vlan_name>
