Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting OpenFlow Slices with an Open Source Implementation of IEEE 802.1ag

SESSION: SCinet Research Sandbox Experiment Results

EVENT TYPE: Research Sandbox

TIME: 11:45AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):Ronald van der Pol


SARA has implemented the IEEE 802.1ag protocol as a set of open source utilities. A couple of strategically placed OpenFlow switches in the sandbox will be used to send Ethernet frames with Ethertype 0x8902 to an external daemon running the 802.1ag utilities. End-users will be able to send Ethernet pings and traceroutes to these switches for monitoring and troubleshooting. The 802.1ag enabled OpenFlow switches will also send periodic hello messages that will be shown on a live status website. We intend to show that the IEEE 802.1ag protocol is a powerful tool for monitoring and troubleshooting Ethernet VPNs and slices. We request a couple of OpenFlow switches with flow entries that will send 802.1ag CFM PDUs to the external 802.1ag daemon. The experiment will also include Ethernet circuits to StarLight, SARA in Amsterdam and other 802.1ag enabled test sites. For more information about the 802.1ag utilities see:
