Welcome to Mininet

Mininet creates scalable (up to hundreds of nodes, depending on your configuration) Software-Defined (e.g. OpenFlow) Networks on a single PC by using Linux processes in network namespaces.

It allows you to quickly create, interact with, customize and share a software defined network prototype, and provides a smooth path to running on hardware.

To download Mininet and get started, go to the Download page.

Mininet's source code is hosted on GitHub at

Alternately, you may wish to learn more about Mininet or peruse the Mininet Documentation.

Please direct any Mininet-specific questions to our helpful mininet-discuss mailing list -- NOT to nox-dev, ovs-discuss, or openflow-discuss.

Have fun with Mininet!!
