This Software Defined Networking Essentials training course abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment. This allows network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across multiple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions. This course is designed to provide Developers and advanced Network Engineers exposure to modeling in Open Source Software Defined Networking (SDN). We first discuss the context of SDN components then progress to show the code created through modeling in OpenDaylight and Tungsten Fabric. This course concludes by writing an application from scratch.

OpenDaylight is an open networking platform that enables SDN and constructs a solid foundation for NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) for all network sizes.

Tungsten Fabric is an open source network virtualization solution for providing connectivity and security for virtual, containerized or bare-metal workloads.

Software Defined Networking Fundamentals disucces

  • SDN
  • OpenDaylight
  • Tungsten Fabric
  • Tools such as mininet and wireshark
  • Applications using OpenDaylight and Tungstein Fabric 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 as well as the role of Tungsten  Fabric.
  • Write applications on-top of the OpenDaylight and Tungsten Fabric APIs.
  • Gained understanding of the tools to simulate and debug network topologies.
