Hands-on SDN Tutorial Highlighting Advanced Concepts on SDN Nationwide Testbeds (Separate registration required)

Time 10/15/17 09:00AM-05:00PM

Session Abstract


The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) network, Internet2, SOX, MAX and other national and regional networks have created an SDN ecosystem that is available to experimenters, developers, and students, with sponsorship from the National Science Foundation.

This tutorial provides the opportunity to build your OpenFlow 1.3 SDN controller using live national testbed resources from R&E network providers. In particular, you will learn how to connect resources with layer 2 links and control data-flows through Corsa switches with an open-source Ryu SDN controller. These foundational concepts will be leveraged in the domains of cyber security, live media, and distributed web services.

With Internet2's migration to an MPLS backbone, an SDN overlay was created to support network research. This tutorial also describes the current overlay, it's ties with GENI, explains how it is accessed, and gives attendees hands-on practice running a simple controller on a slice of the overlay!
