GEC23 Tutorial: WAN Experiments Using the Virtual Topology Service (VTS)


Tuesday 1.30pm - 3.30pm AND 4pm - 5:30pm

Session Leader

Nick Bastin
Barnstormer Softworks


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 (e.g. IPv6) 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.

Install and configure geni-lib:

Note that you cannot use MacOS X Yosemite (10.10.x) with geni-lib. Use a virtual machine of your choice instead.
