Synopsis

  • The emergence of SDN is having a disruptive influence on the world of data networking and is leading to a fundamental re-think of how networks are designed.
  • This workshop will provide an understanding of the key technology elements of SDN via a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises.

Target Audience

  • Anyone currently operating an IP and/or MPLS network who is interesting in understanding the impact of SDN with a view to implementing elements of it in the near future.

Pre-requisites

  • This workshop is not an introduction.
  • It is assumed that the workshop participants have working knowledge of IP routing, MPLS protocols and traffic-engineering, along with know how to use a router command line interface.
  • The lab exercises use IOS-XR (XRv) CLI and Ubuntu VMs

We recommend the following Academy courses be completed before the start of the tutorial:

Workshop topics

  • History
  • Motivation for control and data plane separation
  • Architectural frameworks
  • OpenFlow
  • Topology discovery and management
  • Segment routing
  • OpenDayLight

Other requirements

  • Hardware: It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptop computers with Wifi (b/g/n) and administrative access to system to practice the lessons learned during the workshops. It is also recommended that participants have a pre-installed desktop virtualization tool like virtual box or vmware on their machines.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client, VirtualBox/VMware
  • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure? Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to route-views.routeviews.org. For example from the CLI type: ssh rviews@route-views.routeviews.org
