Get started with Mininet, a virtual network emulator that supports testing, research, debugging, and other essential tasks.
- [Instructor] GNS3 has helped many network engineers to build better networks, share ideas, and make connections. In the same way, Mininet will help you create virtual networks by using a single command, sudo mn, and allow you to test and learn OpenFlow and software-defined networking. Throughout this course, I'm using Mininet. That said, I have got some demonstrations showing you how to implement OpenFlow and SDN on physical hardware.
So OpenFlow and SDN are available for the real world and can be implemented on switches that support it.
Note: This course uses GNS3 for all demonstrations.
