About the Course

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a revolutionary paradigm in network architecture that abstracts and separates the network’s control plane from the forwarding plane. This course aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of SDN concepts, principles, architectures, and their practical applications in modern networking.

  • Basic understanding of networking concepts (TCP/IP, OSI model)
  • Familiarity with network protocols and architectures is beneficial but not mandatory


    Learning Objective

    Upon completion of this course, students will possess a solid understanding of SDN principles, architectures, deployment strategies, and practical implementation skills. They’ll be equipped to design, deploy, and manage SDN-based networks, leveraging its advantages in enhancing network flexibility, scalability, and management efficiency.
