Beginner’s OpenFlow/SDN tutorial using POX controller

On June 4, June 11 and June 18, Deutsche Telekom Innovation Center (DT) will sponsor a series of hands-on tutorials on different OpenFlow controllers, including POX, OpenDayLight, and Ryu. The tutorial will be conducted by Srini Seetharaman.

The June 4th tutorial will start with a brief introduction to OpenFlow/SDN, and then follow-up with a hands-on tutorial on the POX OpenFlow controller. The tutorial will be similar to that conducted on April 30, 2013. For the hands-on part of the session we'll be referring to the following link:

This event will be hosted at the DT office (295 N. Bernardo Ave., STE 200, Mountain View, CA, 94043) from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The total capacity limit is 30. This is free series of tutorials sponsored by Deutsche Telekom Inc. NOTE: Please do not sign up for the event if you have already attended a beginner tutorial, so that you leave room for true beginners.

Please ensure that you RSVP for only one Beginner's Tutorial - either the event on June 4th or the event on June 11th.


Please bring a laptop capable of running Virtual Machines (VM). We will provide a copy of the VM onsite.

    I've created a VM that we'll use for all the tutorials. It has several components already installed, including OpenvSwitch, mininet, POX, NOX, Ryu, OpenDayLight, Eclipse, wireshark. Following are the typical preparation steps for all tutorials:

    1. Install VirtualBox, and through "Preferences" add an new host-only network interface. 2. Install a ssh client (like Putty or Cygwin) on your laptop. Also install X windows server (like Xming for Windows, or xquartz for Mac)

    3. Download the OVA from the following URL (or copy from the USB key that I give tomorrow), and "Import Appliance" the above .ova file.

    4. Ensure that everything boots up ok. The VM login is "ubuntu" and password is "ubuntu".

    5. The Ryu tutorial files are ~/ryu/ryu/app/tutorial*.py , and the POX tutorial file is ~/pox/pox/misc/

    Hi all, thank you so much for the overwhelming interest in the tutorials! I earnestly request those who already attended the April 30 tutorial leave the space for someone new. I see 8/30 registrations are from those who attended the April 30 tutorial. Could you please skip this beginner's tutorial if you already did one and attend the June 18 one instead? Thanks!

      We have hard limit of 30 for Beginner's tutorials. Please ensure that you rsvp for only one of those 2 events. Thanks!

      Sure, I can post the solution for the MAC learning controller that we eventually end up building. In general, one doesn't need to learn to use all controller platforms. I only learned to use NOX and then it was really easy for me to adapt to Ryu, POX, and so forth.

      May 23, 2013

  • Vikram D.

    Please ensure that you RSVP for only one Beginner's Tutorial - either the event on June 4th or the event on June 11th. Do not RSVP for both the Beginner's Tutorials. Space is limited.
