Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) & DevOps Training

SDN & NFV: A DevOps Approach

Learn about SDN, NFV & DevOps from Instructors with Real World Expertise.

A 2 day intermediate course covering how Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualisation and DevOps concepts come together to simplify designing, building, testing and managing networks using software components.

Overview:
Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and DevOps come together to simplify designing, building, testing and managing networks using software components. This allows the usage of off-the-shelf computing platform with no bound to any venders which consequently lead to cost saving and more innovation in networking. This course has been designed to cover the building blocks of SDN and NFV and show how these methods should be used to deploy, monitor and manage network devices which hosts VNFs. This course also covers hands-on lab on utilising some key components of SDN and NFV, including: Hypervisors, SDN controllers, Network virtualization, Containers, working with south-bound and northbound of SDN controllers such as OpenFlow, OVSDB, YANG, etc.

Target Audience:

  • Network Architect
  • System Architect
  • Software Developers
  • Network Engineers
