|Featured SDN Workshops|
|Software-Defined Networking and Network Virtualization
It’s time to move beyond SDN hype and dig into how it can be used in enterprise and data center networks. This day-long workshop will look at the real value of SDN and how enterprises can transition to network virtualization and move onward to automation and orchestration. We’ll explore the different SDN implementations and deployments and include a live demonstration of SDN applications. We’ll also provide a virtual SDN lab that attendees can take with them. The workshop provides detailed background on the available SDN technologies and their implementations, and weighs the benefits and drawbacks of each. Network virtualization has been with us for some time, but SDN has extended expectations. Meanwhile, the integration of networking into cloud orchestration platforms has opened new opportunities, but also increased complexity. You’ll learn how and when you can put SDN to work and how to manage the transition for your environment.
