What about this course?
This course begins with a general introduction to Software Defined Networks, including discussion of control planes and data planes, APIs, logical layers, types of SDN networks, and more. Students will spend 15+ hours delving into real-world implementation and deployment of OpenFlow, an SDN standard that allows a remote controller to interact with the forwarding plane of a network switch or router over the network, making it easy to deploy innovative routing and switching protocols in a network. Learn how having complete transparency into setting up a flow gives you new insights as to how networking can change. Starting with basic tunneling, or traffic engineering, and then advancing to setting up multiple group tables, and tuning flow priorities and flow aging. You will gain hands on the tools and tricks needed to quickly deploy SDN.
