This course “Overview of SDN, Openflow and NFV Workshop” provides an overview of software defined networking (SDN), an emerging paradigm in computer networking that allows a logically centralized software program to control the behavior of an entire network.
Separating a network’s control logic from the underlying physical routers and switches that forward traffic allows network operators to write high-level control programs that specify the behavior of an entire network. This is in contrast to conventional networks, where network operators must provide coding for functionality using low-level device configuration.
Prerequisite for Participants
Delegates must have a fair knowledge of IP, Routing principles and LAN concepts, including basic Ethernet.
