Software Defined Networking Essentials (LFS465)

Software Defined Networking (SDN) abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment, enabling network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across multiple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions. This course introduces the tools and concepts necessary to carry out these tasks.

Who Is It For

This course is designed for developers and advanced network engineers who require exposure to modeling in Open Source Software Defined Networking (SDN).

What You’ll Learn

This course discusses the context of SDN components then progresses to show the code created through modeling in OpenDaylight and Tungsten Fabric. It also covers tools such as mininet and wireshark, and applications using OpenDaylight and Tungstein Fabric APIs. The course concludes with writing an application from scratch.

What It Prepares You For

This course will prepare you to understand SDN and the related protocols, tools and methods used. You will also gain understanding of the OpenDaylight SDN controller with its APIs and how it fits into SDN as well as the role of Tungsten Fabric, and gain the ability to write applications on-top of the OpenDaylight and Tungsten Fabric APIs.
