Tutorial 1 "SDN"

Title: "Developing SDN Applications with OpenDaylight platform"

Speaker: Srini Seetharaman, Dhananjay Sampath;
Deutsche Telekom Innovation Center


We see a strong ecosystem of controller applications developing to manage
software-defined networks. The goal of this tutorial is to prepare you for app development for the OpenDaylight controller platform.

This tutorial will start with a very brief introduction to OpenFlow/SDN, and then describe the OpenDaylight SDN controller platform and its various components.
We will then dive into a hands-on tutorial on OpenDaylight where we will set up the controller platform, walk through an Openflow-based learning switch application, and test the application using virtual Openflow switches.
If time permits, we will also visit a stateless loadbalancer application.
The tutorial will use content from http://sdnhub.org/tutorials/opendaylight 

Tutorial 2 "Optics and Wireless"

Title: "Wireless Communication"

Speaker: Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Thomas Schneider; HfTL Leipzig 
Head of the "Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik"


According to the Cisco Networking Index forecast the global mobile data traffic will increase 13-fold between 2012 and 2017 and the traffic from wireless and mobile devices will exceed the traffic from wired devices already by 2016. Today spectral efficient modulation and coding together with MIMO and FEC are the solutions to keep pace with the increasing data rates. However, for the next generation systems new innovative solutions and the exploitation of new frequency bands are required.

In the first part of the tutorial an overview about the wireless technologies of today with a special focus on spectral efficiency will be given. In the second part the challenges and possible solutions for ultrahigh data transmission especially in the millimeter and THz-region will be discussed. The third part concludes with results of first testbed experiments for the wireless communication with data rates exceeding 100 Gbps. 


Title: "Optical Free-Space Communication"

Speaker: Dr. V. Jungnickel (Basics and VLC), Dr. N. Perlot (FSO and SatCom);
Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute



The first part of the tutorial reviews the development of high-speed short-range optical wireless communications (OWC) targeting wireless LAN applications complementary to radio. Main topics are the optical wireless channel, transmitter and receiver properties, the rate adaptive system concept and its realization based on discrete multi-tone, recent efforts towards real-time implementation, latest records in the Gbit/s range and promising fields of future research and application.

The second part focuses on long-distance regarding free-space optical (FSO) communications either near ground or in space (with satellites). Pros and cons of this approach are discussed and the atmospheric channel, state of the art in transmission technology and recent research trends are highlighted.
