Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Training | SDN OpenFlow Training Course Description

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable used in the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. SDN architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services. The OpenFlow™ protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions. OpenFlow is a communications protocol giving access to the forwarding plane of a network switch or router over the network.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Training | SDN OpenFlow Training also covers Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) which is used for service providers. NFV will eventually transform the way the network operators architect their networks. NFV will be evolved as a standard IT virtualization technology to consolidate many network equipment into high-performance, high-volume servers, switches, and storage, which could be located in Data Centers, Network Nodes, and in end-user premises.
