Lab and Practical works

For the lab work, one PC to one student either in virtual environment or real environment will be provided. Students will be divided into group of 3 students. The working environment and machine connectivity will look like the following:

Tools Needed: TCPDUMP & WIRESHARK, VMWare Environment, Linux/FreeBSD, Windows

Lab 1: Enable IPv6 in Windows/Linux

Lab 2: IPv6 Header Analysis

Lab 3: IPv6 Packet analysis (neighbor/router solicitation/discovery)

Lab 4: Unicast Routing Implementation using Zebra-OSPF & OSPF phase analysis

Lab 5: Multicast Routing Implementation using XORP-PIM/SM & PIM/SM phase analysis

Lab 6: SDN enabled IPv6 network implementaion with Mininet

Lab 7: ONOS, SDN-IP implementation for routing implementaiotn in SoDIP6 network
