Designing and implementing Software-defined Networks.
The course provides an overview of SDN concepts, architecture, and network design elements, as well as how SDN-enabled applications can dynamically control network behavior and make deploying new solutions more efficient and less time consuming.
Students will learn how SDN is used in networking environments and how SDN separates the control and data plane using OpenFlow as the open standard transport mechanism. SDN “use cases” are utilized to demonstrate how SDN can be used in real-world situations to solve network challenges, and demonstrate the implications that SDN will have on the current and future network designs.
Students will learn how to implement the HPE VAN SDN Controller into an existing network by installing, configuring and licensing the HPE VAN SDN Controller. During the course students will be installing, configuring and testing the HPE Network Protector along with the HPE Visualizer SDN Application in the hands-on labs.
After the course, students will have a solid understanding of SDN concepts, how it works, why it is used, and how the HPE VAN SDN Controller can be implemented in an HPE network.
This course is approximately 50% lecture and 50% learning activities and hands-on lab exercises.
