The emergence of SDN (Software Defined Network) has had a disruptive influence on the world of data networking, leading to a fundamental re-think of how networks are designed. This technical workshop will provide an in-depth understanding of the key technological elements of SDN via a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises.
This workshop is being held in-conjunction with SGNOG 6, please visit their website for full details and to register – http://www.sgnog.net
Technical staff currently operating an IP and/or MPLS network who are interested in understanding the impact of SDN with a view of implementing elements of SDN in the near future.
It is assumed that participants will have intermediate-level knowledge of IP routing, routing protocols, management protocols, MPLS protocols, and traffic-engineering.
- Introduction to SDN
- Architectural frameworks for SDN
- Segment routing
- BGP Egress Peer Engineering
- Segment routing interworking with LDP
Participants are advised to bring their own laptop computers with high-speed Wi-Fi (802.11a/g/n/ac) and administrative access to system. It is also recommended that laptops have Intel i5 or i7 processor, >=8GB of RAM and 30GB of free hard disk space.
