NFV and SDN Application Development Training for Service Providers

NFV and SDN Application Development Training for Service Providers brings proven NFV, SDN, cloud computing and IT technologies into the networking domain to help service providers’ developers to build innovative applications and new services and functionalities. Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)  and  Software Defined Networking (SDN) application development bootcamp brings proven NFV, SDN, cloud computing and IT technologies into the networking domain to help service providers’ developers to build innovative applications and new services and functionalities.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-defined Networking (SDN) and allows service providers and network operators to move away from traditional networking to a more flexible networking paradigm. NFV and SDN will enable service providers and operators to respond quickly to new service creation and requests, improve overall service and network efficiency and end-to-end SLA, management and QoS .

NFV and SDN application development training helps the participants with capabilities needed for carrier applications techniques leading to agility and lower costs of operations. Learn about key characteristics and requirements for NFV and SDN platforms and highlights the central role NFV and SDN plays in service providers’ drive toward zero-touch operational models.
