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.
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?".
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.
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.
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,
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.
The first digital book in the Software Defined Networking series describes the principles of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and controller-based network architectures, the characteristics, limitations and scalability challenges of OpenFlow, and alternate SDN approaches.
