Criterion SDN Foundations Workshop is a 2 day rigorous program that is designed for professionals who would like to acquire core SDN ecosystem skillsets to build a career in SDN domain which holds tremendous potential into the future.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging network architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. The SDN movement is turning the networking industry upside down in a tectonic shift of value from hardware to software. This represents the biggest change in networking in a generation and will ultimately benefit everyone who operates a network or uses one.
Traditional network design and protocols had worked so far to cater to the needs of yesterday’s demands. There is a huge rise in networking requirements today in cloud operations, big data, on demand provisioning of resources, mechanism to quickly introduce new revenue generating services. Tradional network design cannot scale to meet this new and ever growing requirements due to the static and complexity nature associated with it and manual intervention at multiple places.
Network administrators relied on earlier toolset like learning traditional network protocols, box level view, CLI based configuration and debugging mechanisms to operate the network. Given that industry is moving fast towards Software-Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm, new skill sets are required for engineers, operators, developers and other practitioners to learn and upgrade themselves to be more relevant and be part of the value chain in the new SDN world.
This program discusses varoius SDN use cases already in production in Enterprise Campus, WAN, Service Provider and Datacenter domains. Given the dynamic nature of SDN, it is also important to understand how to bring the networking infrastruture on demand using tools that are popular among IT so far.
A complete understanding of the new architecture, software and protocols involved, switches, controllers and applications is essential for network personnel going forward and they can start applying it within their respective networking domains.
