MVRP is a standards-based layer-2 protocol for the automatic configuration of VLANs. With MVRP, VLANs can be configured at the end-port, or the network device connected to the switch port, and the VLAN trunks are dynamically created on MVRP enabled switches. Support for MVRP gives OpenStack Networking a standards based alternative to proprietary VLAN provisioning and configuration systems, and simplifies the work of configuring nova with VLANnetworking.

SR-IOV NIC support :
Although generic SR-IOV support is mostly nova story, SR-IOV NIC has some specific features from networking point of view. For example, how to keep the network isolation when the VF NIC is assigned to VM directly, how to live migrate the VM with VF NIC. These deserve careful discussion in H summit.

The problem with Quantum tests in Tempest is that the test cases are tightly coupled to what the Quantum API provides. Therefore the test cases have no significant difference with unit tests other than not having stubbed objects.
In order to prove that Quantum and its plugins are production ready, we need a thorough collection of integration tests based on NaaS requirements.
I've gathered some NaaS features as a checklist in the document below.
