Software Defined Neworking (SDN)
Online Certification Training Program
The SDN Professional Training Program (SDNP) provides a strong foundation of vendor-neutral knowledge and skills validation for engineering professionals wishing to improve their careers and gain advancement in the world of software defined networking. The program seeks to provide independent validation of both concept level skills for new entrants as well as technical level engineering skills for professionals working in SDN environments, either development or deployment. The program prepares you for Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) SDN Certification.
ONF SDN Certification Training Program
- Course Duration: 3 weeks (9-Dec-2018 to 23-Dec-2018)
- Weekend Batch (Every Sunday 6pm to 10pm IST)
- Prerequisite: Linux and IP Networking Fundamentals
What is SDN?
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. This 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. The OpenFlow® protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions.
Network control is directly programmable because it is decoupled from forwarding functions.
Abstracting control from forwarding lets administrators dynamically adjust network-wide traffic flow to meet changing needs.
Network intelligence is (logically) centralized in software-based SDN controllers that maintain a global view of the network, which appears to applications and policy engines as a single, logical switch.
SDN lets network managers configure, manage, secure, and optimize network resources very quickly via dynamic, automated SDN programs, which they can write themselves because the programs do not depend on proprietary software.
OPEN STANDARDS-BASED AND VENDOR-NEUTRAL:
When implemented through open standards, SDN simplifies network design and operation because instructions are provided by SDN controllers instead of multiple, vendor-specific devices and protocols.
