Course Overview:

Software Defined Networks Training | SDN Training Overview Course

Software Defined Networks Training, SDN is enabling organizations to accelerate application deployment and delivery, dramatically reducing IT costs through policy-enabled workflow automation. SDN technology enables cloud architectures by delivering automated, on-demand application delivery and mobility at scale. SDN enhances the benefits of data center virtualization, increasing resource flexibility and utilization and reducing infrastructure costs and overhead.

SDN is programmatically configured allowing network managers and administrators to configure and optimize network resources via automated SDN programs dynamically. Learn how SDN will accomplish these great business objectives using a centralized approach managing network and application services into centralized orchestration platforms to automate the provisioning and configuration your infrastructure. SDN delivers speed and agility when deploying new applications and business services. Flexibility, policy, and programmability are the hallmarks of Cisco’s SDN solutions, with a platform capable of handling the most demanding networking need of today and tomorrow.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Software Defined Networks Training | SDN Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the SDN Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
