  • 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 architected.
  • This 2 x half-day tutorial will provide an in-depth understanding of Segment Routing, one of the key elements/technologies in the SDN framework, with hands- on labs.

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.


  • 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

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

Workshop topics

  • Control and data plane separation
  • Architectural frameworks
  • Segment routing architecture
  • IGP Segments
  • BGP Peering segments

Other requirements

  • Hardware: It is highly recommended that participants bring their own laptop computers for lab work.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client
  • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure? Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to For example from the CLI type: ssh
