This course introduces you to SDN with an overview of SDN concepts, architecture, network design elements, how SDN-enabled applications can dynamically control network behavior, and how SDN will make deploying new solutions more efficient and less time consuming.
You learn how SDN is used in networking environments, and how SDN separates the control and data plane using OpenFlow as the open standard transport mechanism. It also teaches you how to implement the HP VAN SDN Controller into an existing network by installing, configuring and licensing the HP VAN SDN Controller. You install, configure and test this new HP SDN Application during hands on labs.
