SOFTWARE DEFINED NETWORKING WITH OPENDAYLIGHT – GTLFSDNO
SDN (Software Defined Networking) abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment. This allows network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across mulitple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions.
OpenDaylight is an open networking platform that enables SDN and constructs a solid foundation for NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) for all network sizes.
Software Defined Networking with OpenDaylight discusses:
- Tools such as mininet and wireshark
- Applications using OpenDaylight APIs
After completing the course, students will:
- Have a solid understanding of SDN and the protocols, tools and methods used.
- Understand the openDayLight SDN controller with its APIs and how it fits into SDN.
- Write applications on-top of the OpenDaylight APIs.
- Gained understanding of the tools to simulate and debug network topologies.
As part of your registration, a printed copy of the course manual will be course manual will be provided.
This course is for experienced network administrators either migrating to SDN and/or OpenDaylight, as well as those who are already deploying it, who want to understand the principles and methods upon which it is built.
Students should have a good grasp of typical scalability and system administration issues frequently encountered in enterprise environments. They should also be well versed in Linux command line usage, shell scripting and text file editing.
