Instructor-led Classroom Adult Training in Singapore - Modular Fast Track Skill-Based Trainings

Software Defined Networking (SDN) Training

In recent years, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and others have invested heavily in Software Defined Networking(SDN) both in their Data Center and their wide area networks (WAN), and many have published details about their homegrown SDN software and white box switch implementation. The Software Defined Networking (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 using Open Source Platform. The OpenFlow™ protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions. In this course, you will learn on how to use OpenFlow framework to implement an open SDN controller and more.

Topics include:

  • Linux Docker 
  • OpenFlow vSwitch, 
  • Open Flow Controllers 
  • Python scripting for network automation
