opendaylight open source

This two day course is a condensed and intensive version of our soon to be offered full four-day class.

SDN (Software Defined Networking) abstracts networking infrastructure away from the actual physical equipment. This allows network system administrators to maintain the networking environment across mulitple vendors and hardware, and operating systems and versions.

OpenDaylight is an open networking platform that enables SDN and constructs a solid foundation for NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) for all network sizes.


This course is for experienced network administrators either migrating to SDN and/or OpenDaylight, as well as those who are already deploying it, who want to understand the principles and methods upon which it is built. Students should have a good grasp of typical scalability and system administration issues frequently encountered in enterprise environments. They should also be well­ versed in Linux command line usage, shell scripting and text file editing.
