1. A control apparatus controlling a network, the control apparatus comprising:
a database which stores control information for controlling the network;
a plurality of modules, each of which issues a database operation command so as to operate the database based on a predetermined algorithm;
an interface unit which changes the control information responsive to the database operation command issued by any one of the modules; and
a control unit which controls packet processing in the network based on the control information changed by the interface unit,
wherein a combination of the modules to be connected to the interface unit is configured to be changed by an operator, and
wherein, by changing the combination of the modules, the operator configures the control apparatus suitable to a communication protocol used in the network.
