Software Defined Networking Carrier Grade (SDN)

The Software Defined Networking Carrier Grade v1.1 course provides service provider and data center engineers with the knowledge and skills needed to install, operate and troubleshoot an enterprise CPE-facing, SDN-controlled device focusing on a vendor-neutral OpenDaylight solution. The Software Defined Networking Carrier Grade (SDNCG) validates the ability to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise or customer edge-based software defined network using a controller running OpenFlow. In addition, students will be able to compare existing SDN technologies from a vendor-neutral perspective to prepare them for an industry shift towards NFV driven technologies. With SDNCG, a network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level SDN support and integration using open-standards. The curriculum covers OpenFlow fundamentals, virtual switching technologies, basic security, clustering and SDN concepts.
