Software Defined Networks (SDN)

Overview

Software Defined Networks (SDN) are changing the entire communications infrastructure landscape. New hyperscale players are rising, older telco players who fail to adapt will disappear. In order for your organization to make its SDN & NFV journey a successful one, new skills will be required across many role types and teams. 

We offer a complete range of education and training around SDN, SD-WAN, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Network Automation from non-techinical through to advanced engineering perspectives. Learning can be delivered in a variety of formats; from self-paced online learning to fit around your schedule, or to reach a large audience in a cost-effective manner, to advanced architecture and engineering courses that are delivered in the traditional instructor-led classroom environment (virtual/remote classroom during COVID travel restrictions); a format which offers the best access to our expert instructors knowledge. This range of training will inform and reward with vendor independent knowledge that will help your organization to understand the parameters and engage in discussion that will allow you to make the right choices on your SDN journey.

We also offer a complimentary range of courses around programming languages such as Python, Github & DevOps which will develop your organisations capacity to deal with the 'software' element of SDN. Embedding software skills into your engineering community will be crucial for success.

Additionally we also have specific vendor based training such as Redhat or Suse Openstack administration courses for installation, operation and maintenance of these platforms.
