SDN, NFV and Cloud Computing Essential 

SDN, NFV and Cloud Computing Essential is a 3-day training course covers: Cloud Computing, Virtualization, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) as new concepts and technologies still evolving.

Learn about SDN, NFV, virtualization and cloud technologies and how they affect the data, control and management planes and virtualization of the enterprise and service provider’s networks. SDN, Virtualization and cloud computing are enablers of the network transformation.

Learn about:

  • Basic concepts behind Cloud Computing, Virtualization, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN)
  • Building blocks of Cloud Computing, Virtualization, NFV and SDN
  • Concepts of Forwarding Plane, the Control Plane and the Application Plane
  • Concepts of Cloud Computing and Virtualization
  • Cloud Computing Service Model types
  • Concepts of Cloud Computing, Hypervisor technologies and Virtualization
  • Cloud Computing Service Model types.
  • NFV and SDN Architecture and Functions
  • NFV concepts, standards and network transformation
  • NFV architecture, NFV requirements and challenges
  • VNF operations and management
  • SDN and NFV applied to enterprise and service provider’s networks
  • Virtualization, Virtual Machines, Hypervisors and Containers.
  • OpenStack and Cloud Computing implemented using OpenStack.
  • Service Model type (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and others)
