Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
Learn about Software Defined Network architecture and the important protocols related to SDN implementations
Course Code : 6004
The course discusses what SDN is, how it works while also discussing the SDN protocols. Since SDN can manage and control physical network elements, as well as, Network Function Virtualization, it helps network professionals to deploy and maintain a clean integration between cloud environments and the physical network itself. Thus, a study of the NFV has also been included in this course. The course clarifies what happens at the cloud boundary and looks into the virtual network within the cloud itself. During the course, participants build, configure and deploy the most popular network functions, routing, bridging and OpenFlow switches along with requisite protocols. Participants will then integrate these components with an emulated physical environment and perform verification testing. The course will also cover OpenStack Neutron and Neutron-Compute.
