SDN 101: Integrating Mininet on Raspberry Pi

How to install and run OpenFlow switches on a Raspberry Pi using Mininet Mininet is a network emulator that can create and emulate an entire OpenFlow network locally on your PC, or in this case, a Raspberry Pi. This is similar in concept to network emulators such as GNS3. Mininet may even be added to […]

SDN 101: OpenFlow, HP Virtual Routers and GNS3

In a previous blog entry, I showed you how to integrate Mininet and GNS3 (SDN 101: Mininet (OpenFlow) and GNS3) for learning SDN and OpenFlow. Mininet is free, open source software which makes it really easy to learn. You can also download free, open source controllers like OpenDaylight and ONOS. I will now show you […]

SDN 101: Mininet (OpenFlow) and GNS3

In this blog entry I am going to show you how to set up an OpenFlow enabled network running in Mininet with GNS3 devices and an SDN Controller. This network will run both OpenFlow and traditional networking. You will find this kind of set up useful when learning SDN and OpenFlow. See the GNS3 academy […]

SDN 101: Using Mininet and SDN Controllers

Overview Mininet is a network emulator that can create and emulate an entire OpenFlow network locally on your laptop / PC. This is similar to how GNS3 allows you to simulate a Cisco network on your laptop. Mininet may even be added to GNS3 in the future. The easiest way to get started with Mininet […]

OpenFlow HP VAN SDN Controller and Mininet integration

OpenFlow: HP VAN SDN Controller and Mininet integration

This video demonstrates OpenFlow integration between the HP VAN SDN Controller and Mininet. The HP Controller is an SDN controller that supports OpenFlow version 1.0 and 1.3. Mininet allows for easy learning and testing of and OpenFlow network emulated on a PC. This is similar in concept to GNS3 or HP Simware.

Mininet and the HP VAN SDN Controller

Mininet is a network emulator that can create and emulate an entire OpenFlow network locally on your PC. This is similar in concept to network emulators such as Simware (HP Comware) or GNS3 (Cisco IOS). Mininet allows you to create different topologies consisting of OpenFlow switches and hosts (end devices). Topologies can vary from a single […]
