    Software Defined Networking (SDN) Workshop

    Dates: 25-28 Oct 2021
    Location: Baga Toiruu-20, Ulaanbaatar 14200
    Venue: Information Technology Park, #211 Room


    • The emergence of SDN is having a disruptive influence on the world of data networking and is leading to a fundamental re-think of how networks are architected.
    • This workshop will provide an understanding of the key technology elements of SDN via a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises.

    Target Audience

    • Anyone currently operating an IP and/or MPLS network who is interesting in understanding the impact of SDN with a view to implementing elements of it in the near future.


    • This workshop is not an introduction.
    • It is assumed that the workshop participants have working knowledge of IP routing, MPLS protocols and traffic-engineering, along with know how to use a router command line interface.
    • The lab exercises use IOS-XR (XRv) CLI and Ubuntu VMs

    We recommend the following Academy courses be completed before the start of the tutorial:

    Workshop topics

    • History
    • Motivation for control and data plane separation
    • Architectural frameworks
    • OpenFlow
    • Topology discovery and management
    • Segment routing
    • OpenDayLight

    Other requirements Other requirements

    • 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.
    • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client, VirtualBox/VMware
    • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure? Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to For example from the CLI type: ssh
