Software Defined Networking (SDN)

SDN Principles

4:16:00 Free items Introduction to Software Defined Networking (SDN)

This webinar will help you figure out whether it's worth spending time and energy on Software Defined Networking and related technologies, and explain the concepts of SDN, whitebox switching, and network programmability and automation.

46:00 Free items Network Programmability 101

This webinar discusses fundamental concepts and ideas that network engineers can use today to start "ramping up" the software-defined path. Matt Oswalt addresses some of the biggest questions on many network professionals' minds - questions like "Do I need to be a programmer to keep my job?", or "There is so much to learn - where do I start?"

1:57:00 Free items SDN Architectures and Deployment Considerations

This webinar answers some fundamental questions anyone should ask prior to a production SDN deployment.

Enabling Technologies

5:07:00 Free items OpenFlow Deep Dive

This 6-hour deep dive webinar describes the technical details of OpenFlow, the protocol heavily promoted by Open Networking Foundation (ONF) as the cornerstone of next-generation controller-based networking.

2:13:00 Free items Network Function Virtualization

This webinar describes benefits and drawbacks of Network Function Virtualization and virtual appliances, including performance and security challenges.

1:33:00 BGP-Based SDN Solutions

This webinar describes how SDN controllers use BGP to propagate reachability information or influence forwarding behavior in SDN networks based on traditional distributed routing architectures.

1:37:00 Free items PCEP and BGP-LS Deep Dive

The webinar describes BGP-LS and PCEP, the key enabling protocols for SDN in the MPLS-based WAN. BGP-LS is used to convey topology and TE link-state information to the controller, and PCEP allows reporting of LSP status, and creation, deletion and modification of TE LSPs.


1:34:00 Free items Monitoring Software Defined Networks

This webinar examines several aspects of network management for SDNs and explores how network management can be improved, while providing useful information about these new forms of networking.

4:34:00 Free items SDN Use Cases

This webinar describes real-life SDN use cases, ranging from data center fabrics, network monitoring and traffic tapping, scale-out network services and DDoS mitigation to service insertion, forwarding optimization, and traffic engineering.

1:34:00 Free items Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) Overview

Starting with the problem statement and a brief history of various architectural approaches to-date, this webinar delves into the design components of an SD-WAN system and its three traditional layers: management, control, and data. It then talks about use cases from real deployments and covers topics such as traffic engineering/path control and failover.

2:52:00 Free items Cisco SD-WAN

This webinar provides an introduction to the Cisco SD-WAN solution (formerly Viptela). We will start with the fundamentals of Cisco SD-WAN, its components and principles of operation, discuss its advantages and limitations, and clarify possible doubts and misconceptions.
