SDN/NFV Evolution and Implementation Solutions is a 3 day course. Students will learn the basics of SDN [Software Defined Networks] and understand the drawbacks of the traditional networking platform in comparison to the solutions that SDN offers today. SDN is a new approach to networking in which network control is decoupled from the data forwarding function and is directly programmable. Implementing SDN enables extraordinary agility while reducing service development and operational costs, and frees network administrators to integrate best-of-breed technology as it is developed.
In addition students will be familiarized with NFV [Network Functional Virtualization] which is a network architecture concept that uses the technologies of IT virtualization to virtualize entire classes of network node functions into building blocks that may connect, or chain together, to create communication services.
This course will enable students to understand the difference between SDN and NFV and how these two architectures complete and interact with one another to enhance today's dynamic, demanding agile networking environments. Students will gain an understanding of the capabilities of SDN/NFV and gain knowledge and practice from the two leading vendors in the SDN/NFV market today that offer customers the ability to innovate their networks to the next level.
