Official Linux Foundation™ Course

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. This Software Defined Networking with OpenDaylight training 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. 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.

 

Software Defined Networking with OpenDaylight discusses:

  •     SDN
  •     OpenDaylight
  •     Tools such as mininet and wireshark
  •     Applications using OpenDaylight APIs

 

After completing this intensive one-day 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.

Those who attend the entire course will receive a digital Certificate of Course Completion from the Linux Foundation™.
