Course Overview

This course introduces software defined networking (SDN), an emerging paradigm in computer networking that allows a logically centralized software program to control the behavior of an entire network.
Separating a network’s control logic from the underlying physical routers and switches that forward traffic allows network operators to write high-level control programs that specify the behavior of an entire network, in contrast to conventional networks, whereby network operators must codify functionality in terms of low-level device configuration.

Who should attend?

The seminar is built for technical, marketing and business development individuals from Telecom Service Providers as well as Manufacturers of Networking hardware and software products.
