GEC22 Tutorial: Programming GENI OpenFlow Resources


Session Leaders

Sarah Edwards
Xuan Liu
University of Missouri, Kansas City


This tutorial will introduce OpenFlow and guide experimenters through the writing of simple OpenFlow controllers to showcase some of the OpenFlow capabilities. This tutorial will consist of two parts: an introduction to OpenFlow and OpenFlow resources in GENI and a hands-on portion.

In the hands-on portion, attendees will use the OpenFlow framework, POX, to write controllers to control their OpenFlow switch. Experimenters will be able to use an OpenFlow software switch, Open vSwitch (OVS), and/or use an OpenFlow-capable hardware switch.


Intermediate to Advanced.

Of interest to:

  • primarily GENI experimenters,
  • but also of interest to GENI and US Ignite developers
