SDN for Network Engineers
The SDN for Network Engineers class is a 2-day class with 50% lecture and 50% lab that gives a background on SDN architecture, definitions, use cases, where the industry is heading and migration strategies. This class has been designed to provide a broad and hands-on experience for network engineers requiring SDN knowledge. The Lab uses a variety of controllers including Floodlight, OpenDaylight and commercial controllers.
Students should have a basic understanding of common virtualization tools such as Virtualbox or VMWare Fusion and have a laptop with permissions to modify BIOS to permit virtualization and install VMs.
A basic understanding of routing and switching is required.
