Due to the multi-vendor nature of networking, it can be difficult to see how to apply Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in your environment. Do you need to buy anything? Can you implement SDN yourself? Do you need to hire someone? Are you locked into a specific vendor? What options are there in choosing a vendor or implementing a multi-vendor solution? Through an analysis of the SDN landscape, you will gain the confidence to begin building your SDN design and migration strategy.
This interactive training can be taken from any location, your office or home and is delivered by a trainer. This training does not have any delegates in the class with the instructor, since all delegates are virtually connected.
