SDN Training by TONEX- Learn from SDN Experts

SDN Training, Software Defined Networking Training course. Learn about SDN, Software-Defined Networking as a disruptive breakthrough enabling networking organizations and IT professionals to be part of the open networking and network transformation movement.

The SDN architecture is directly programmable allowing network control is directly programmable since it becomes decoupled from forwarding functions. Abstracting control from forwarding creates agility and allows administrators dynamically adjust network-wide traffic flow as needed.

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is enabling organizations to accelerate application deployment and delivery, dramatically reducing IT costs through policy-enabled workflow automation. SDN technology enables cloud architectures by delivering automated, on-demand application delivery and mobility at scale. SDN enhances the benefits of data center virtualization, increasing resource flexibility and utilization and reducing infrastructure costs and overhead.

Learn how SDN, Open standards-based and vendor-neutral, is centrally managed and allowing network intelligence to be centralized in software-based SDN controllers. Network intelligence will be visible as a single logical switch to applications and policy engines.

SDN is programmatically configured allowing network managers and administrators to configure and optimize network resources via automated SDN programs dynamically. Learn how SDN will accomplish these great business objectives using a centralized approach managing network and application services into centralized orchestration platforms to automate the provisioning and configuration your infrastructure.

SDN delivers speed and agility when deploying new applications and business services. Flexibility, policy, and programmability are the hallmarks of Cisco’s SDN solutions, with a platform capable of handling the most demanding networking need of today and tomorrow.
