About the course
Software-defined networking (SDN) is an emerging approach for controlling and managing network infrastructures. All control functionality (such as routing) is implemented in software and executed with the help of a centralized controller. As part of this practical course, we now want to find out how such SDN applications can be developed. In this course, we will cover the following topics:
As a first step, we will practically experiment with the different concepts and develop several (small) SDN applications. Then we will try to make use of these concepts in a slightly larger scope (reverse engineering of an existing SDN application from the research environment + reproduction of the results).
