Abstract. The active use of virtualization technologies in the construction of network infrastructures pro-vides the possibility of using new methods and tools to manage the components of these structures, which, in turn, expands the scope of solutions based on the concept of programmable (software-configurable) networks. Expanding the scope of implementation of such solutions, lead to increasing need for specialists who capable to combine knowledge of network technologies with programming skills. An approach to building the laboratory complex of an educational institution is proposed. The ap-proach is reported to allow for continuity in teaching network technologies and for providing students with practical skills of using modern methods of managing virtual components of network infrastructure. Application of such tools as Ansible platform, the libraries of the NCCLIENT and PyEZ programs for dy-namic management of virtual components of the hardware-software stand as part of the laboratory complex of software-configured network infrastructures of RTF UrFU is considered.
Keywords: software-configurable networks, virtual separation of network infrastructure, virtualization technologies, laboratory complex
