Information-Centric Networking (ICN) Tutorial (Separate registration required)

Time 10/15/17 01:00PM-04:30PM

Room Pacific A

Session Abstract


Get introduced to and learn more about Community ICN (CICN) at this immersive, hands-on training for code contributors and users of the Internet2 ICN Testbed. The training will begin with an overview of FD.io, VPP, and CICN followed by learning on how to use some of the CICN projects (CICN plugin for VPP, socket-based forwarder, and vICN), including coding and understanding the internals through a series of deep dives and hands-on labs, and will close with a short “hackfest” component for unstructured community collaboration. Subject Matter Expert will be on-hand throughout the 1/2-day tutorial. Attendees should be familiar with GNU Linux OS and have basic knowledge of Information-Centric Networking (in particular, CCN/NDN). Optionally, the attendee that is familiar with Linux containers and software-defined networking might want to actively reproduce virtual network testbed deployed during the tutorial using their own laptop.

NOTE: To replicate the tutorial, a pre-configured OVA image can be found at: https://wiki.fd.io/view/Tutorial-icn17

The image is very large (10GB), so please download before attending the tutorial.

The following is the proposed agenda;

1. CICN project overview (30 min);
2. Vector Packet Processing for ICN (60 min);
3. Break (30 min);
4. vICN: configuration, management and control of an virtual ICN network (60min);
5. Applications: Consumer/ Producer Socket API, MPEG-DASH over ICN (30 min).
