VTN OpenDaylight Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) is an application that provides multi-tenant virtual network on an SDN controller. VTN can be used to create isolated virtual networks in the SDN controller.

FlowVisor FlowVisor is a special purpose OpenFlow controller that acts as a transparent proxy between OpenFlow switches and multiple OpenFlow controllers

The main difference between VTN and FlowVisor is FlowVisor creates rich ''slices'' of network resources and delegates control of each slice to a different controller. In VTN the physical network resources cannot be sliced across multiple controllers.

Hi Sanal PK Did you worked in the flowvisor to slice a network.
