Description

About

This two day course is a condensed and intensive version of our soon to be offered full four-day class.

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 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.

 Audience

This course is designed to provide Developers and advanced Network Engineers exposure to modeling in Open Source Software Defined Networking (SDN). Students should have a good grasp of typical scalability and system administration issues frequently encountered in enterprise environments. They should also be well­ versed in Linux command line usage, shell scripting and text file editing.

Course Materials

Authorized printed training materials from The Linux Foundation. As part of your registration, a printed copy of the course manual will be course manual will be provided. If you are attending in person the material will be available onsite on the day the class begins.

Course Description

Software Defined Networking with OpenDaylight discusses:

  • SDN

Why train with The Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation is the go-to source for training on virtually every aspect of Linux and many other open source technologies. Here are a few things that make The Linux Foundation the right choice for training:

  1. The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts Linux and many other open source projects, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released).
  2. Being so close to the kernel The Linux Foundation is constantly updating training to ensure that the most up-to-date information is being thought. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
  3. The Linux Foundation does not sell any software or support services so there’s no hidden sales agenda in the training material. The only goal is to help students learn the material.
  4. When you train with The Linux Foundation, you’re learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you’re using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.
