This technical workshop will provide an in-depth understanding of the key technological elements of SDN via a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises.

Target audience
Technical staff currently operating an IP and/or MPLS network who are interested in understanding the impact of SDN with a view of implementing elements of SDN in the near future.

It is assumed that participants will have intermediate-level knowledge of IP routing, routing protocols, management protocols, MPLS protocols, and traffic-engineering.

The Network Automation Workshop will cover different topics including:

  • Configuration management
  • Telemetry
  • Programmatic interfaces
  • Maintaining configuration consistency
  • Service provisioning

You will get experience with tools like Ansible and Docker. We will cover common approaches and reference architectures so you can obtain knowledge and build the automation framework that fits your needs.

It is expected that you are familiar with a flavour of Linux and the basic concepts of Go or Python programing language.

Streaming telemetry is becoming a large part of networking today so will look into how we can collect, store and analyse high-frequency data with tools like Grafana, Elasticsearch and InfluxDB
