About this Course

Code TPIP1502
Duration 1 Day

This is a concise course addressing Software Defined Networking (SDN). It begins with a discussion of the drivers towards and the main objectives of SDN, before examining the architecture engineered to support SDN, including a discussion of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV). The deployment of software defined networks is discussed in detail, with significant consideration of switching techniques and SDN in wireless networks, as is the southbound operation of SDN with a focus on OpenFlow. The course also includes information on SDN in transport networks and a key case study looking at Google's G Scale Network.


Delegates should have experience or an understanding of the principles or IP networking and routing.
