This course “Telefocal Certified SDN NFV Professional (TC-SNP)”>/a> aims to give participants a deep, technical understanding of the two most important, yet potentially disruptive, network technologies that would transform the way networks and CSPs operate – Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtutalisation (NFV). Participants will be awarded the Professional Certification by Telefocal Asia after they have successfully passed the online examination conducted on the last day of the training.
SDN provides a revolutionary approach and a paradigm shift in designing, building and managing next generation networks that allow a logically centralised or distributed software program to control the behaviour of an entire network. The basic concept of abstracting the control logic from the underlying physical infrastructure allows network operators to write high-level control software that specifies the behaviour of an entire network programmatically and dynamically. This is in contrast to conventional networks whereby functionality is embedded low-level in the physical infrastructure.
Logically-centralised control allows operators to specify more complex tasks that involve integrating many disjoint network functions – NFVs – (i.e. policy control, firewall, security, prioritization) into a single control framework. Therefore, it allows operators to create more sophisticated policies and configuration which are easier to configure, manage and troubleshoot.
Both SDN and NFV are the catalyst technologies that will transform current networks into networks that are agile and, in addition, have the propensity to fulfill future business requirements.
The course includes Lab sessions. Candidates will be put through lab work, which consists of network configuration, code samples and setup scenarios. They would also be put through a set of quizzes that is administered online.
Should a minimum score for these examination be achieved, it would lead to the candidate being certified as a Telefocal Certified SDN NFV Professional.
