Nokia SR Linux and FRR

Description A Nokia SR Linux connected back-to-back FRR router
Components Nokia SR Linux, FRR
Resource requirements1 2
2 GB
Topology file srlfrr01.clab.yml
Name srlfrr01
Version information2 containerlab:0.9.0, srlinux:20.6.3-145, frrouting/frr:v7.5.0, docker-ce:19.03.13


A lab consists of an SR Linux node connected with FRR router via a point-to-point ethernet link. Both nodes are also connected with their management interfaces to the clab docker network.

Use cases#

This lab allows users to launch basic control plane interoperability scenarios between Nokia SR Linux and FRR network operating systems.

The lab directory contains files with essential configurations which can be used to jumpstart the interop demonstration. There you will find the config files to demonstrate a classic iBGP peering use case:

  • daemons: frr daemons config that is bind mounted to the frr container to trigger the start of the relevant FRR services
  • frr.cfg: vtysh config lines to configure a basic iBGP peering
  • srl.cfg: sr_cli config lines to configure a basic iBGP peering

  1. Resource requirements are provisional. Consult with the installation guides for additional information. 

  2. The lab has been validated using these versions of the required tools/components. Using versions other than stated might lead to a non-operational setup process.
