Course Overview:

Software Defined Networks and Network Functions Virtualization Training | SDN | NFV Training In-depth

In this Software Defined Networks and Network Functions Virtualization Training | SDN | NFV Training course, we will study SDN and NFV, including the reasons for their development, how they are related, how they are deployed, and the benefits that they offer. We’ll take a detailed look at how SDN works, the OpenFlow protocol, SDN in the datacenter and the WAN, deployments of SDN in the real world, equipment manufacturers, the interaction of SDN with optical networking technologies (such as OTN, ASON, and GMPLS), and the future of SDN.

We will also study the principles of NFV, how NFV works in practice to simplify network operation and configuration, and the interaction of NFV and SDN in today’s networks and the networks of the future.
