Brigade Members:


    • Pre-requisites for the Paris ONOS technical Tutorial,

You will need a laptop with at least 8GB of RAM and at least 15GB of free hard disk space. The computer can run Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux – all work fine with VirtualBox, the only software requirement. To download and install VirtualBox, you will need to visit its official site [1]. The tutorial instructions require prior knowledge of TCP/IP, SDN (e.i. OpenFlow) and Mininet in particular in addition to a good Java skills. So please first make a look at the OpenFlow tutorial [2] and the Mininet walkthrough [3]. Also being familiar with Apache Karaf [4] and OSGI [5] is required.

    • Set up your environment

You will need to download and set the single VM prepared for this tutorial. It is based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS including an ONOS 1.11 cluster based on LXCthat is prepared based on the onos.py automated tools. In addition to ONOS, the VM contains an IntelliJ IDEA with java 8 and Wireshark. The VM is available for downloading at [6]. Please unzip the downloaded file and Open the OVF file, this will open virtual box with an import dialog. Make sure you provision your VM with 6GB of RAM and if possible and 2 CPUs with 90 % of usage (one CPU can work but with a poor performance).

    • Attention: The linux user/pass: meetup/onos, the UI user/pass: onos/rocks and the karaf user/pass: karaf/karaf.

First brigade notes: 

The big image document :

Brigade goal:

Providing and re-organizing open source modular teaching materials in different levels so that it can be used for courses targeted for different types of audience (networking professionals, undergraduate or master students of different backgrounds, phd students, software developers with/without experience in new networking technologies, etc,).

We believe that we do not need to reinvent the wheel, just agree on the available resources that we can point to and reuse available materials from all the community to build modular structured materials that start by introducing the big image and the presentation of all the NFV/SDN envirenment tools, i.g. DevOps.



  • Short-term focus in 2017:

    • Describe the whole big image of virtualization/SDN/NFV/ONOS/CORD

    • Start with the designing of three training levels (beginner, Net engineer and user, developer). This should be designed in a modular way such that any student of any IT or CS field can follow appropriate modules.

    • Start by the organization and the creation of the modules of the beginners level in addition to the complementary modules (create contents or find the good references). See the shared document for more details.

    • Think with ambassadors about having initial teaching events to try out the content in late Q2 perhaps

  • Long-term focus:

    • Proposed a demo server with test bed and demo accounts, could be a tie in to the teaching/hands on material (see with ON.Lab members).

    • Go in depth for the intermediate and advanced levels

    • The ultimate long-term goal is to provide certification services mainly for ONOS/CORD in addition to the open source training materials and to make a call for sponsorship and collaboration. The Brigade can establish service relationships between ONOS/Cord (ON.Lab) and its channel partners to encourage them for joining the SDN/NFV and ONOS /CORD certification services, review, evaluate and enhance the training materials and become qualified as Certified Service Partner. Such a program can add real credit to the Brigade expected results and provide better services to customers as training is a main phase usually before or after the deployment.

During the next meeting we plan to:

  • Collect your feedback on the shared documents: understand how the modular learning course should be (basically modified the shared document about the big image).

  • Divide us in groups and take the ownership of different tasks (depending on your interest) in order to realize our short-term goals.

  • Discuss the organization of a training workshop during ONOS Build 2017

How to get involved:

The area of teaching in networking and software development for the new SDN/NFV technologies and in particular ONOS/CORD projects is quite vast and we have many issues to tackle. The teaching brigade is always looking for new members willing to contribute! Beginner or expert, network guy or developer. To get involved is easy, just write us to Abdulhalim Dandoush or David Boswell or simply join the mailing list group and take part of our activities
