GEC22 Tutorial: Building Network Experiments Using the Virtual Topology Service


Session Leaders

Nick Bastin


A hands on tutorial for getting up and running with the basics of VTS on GENI using geni-lib, as well as pointers and demos of advanced VTS functionality such as Network Function insertion.


Intermediate to Advanced.

GENI experimenters wishing to:

  • build complex topologies or
  • work with protocols (IPv6, MPLS, etc.) that are not generally available in the test bed.

While VTS is not exclusive to SDN research, SDN experimenters will likely find additional value.

Pre-requisites / Pre-work

Working knowledge of available GENI resources and how to build basic experiments.
