Welcome to the SDN-IP tutorial!

Getting Started

This tutorial is designed to be an introduction to how SDN-IP runs in practice. We'll go through starting up a simple emulated network, and we'll see how SDN-IP controls this network to move data from place to place.

If you haven't done so already, it's highly recommended that you go through the ONOS Tutorial first. This will give you some familiarity with the basic functionality of ONOS. In addition, you should read through the SDN-IP Architecture <LINK> document to get an overview of how SDN-IP works.

Hopefully you've already done the ONOS tutorial, so you already have the ONOS tutorial VM available. If not, check out the Setup your environment <LINK> section of the ONOS tutorial to get the VM ready.

Start up the network

We've prepared a simple emulated Mininet topology, which contains 6 OpenFlow switches. Connected around the edges of the SDN network are 4 emulated routers. The routers run Quagga, which is an open-source routing suite. In our case we run the BGP part of Quagga on them, to simulate external BGP routers belonging to other administrative domains. The goal of SDN-IP is to be able to talk BGP with these routers in order to exchange traffic between the different external ASes.

A picture of the topology is shown below <MAKE PICTURE>

Double-click the "SDN-IP Mininet" icon on the desktop to start up the network.
