Cloud Infrastructure and SDN

Course description (english, PDF)

Duration: 2 days

Due to the development of all-IP networks the Telco industry is picking up more and more concepts of the IT industry. The next evolution is about to start; classical network elements, that were designed to fulfil certain tasks in a Telco network will run as virtual machines in a data center, i.e. a cloud infrastructure. Furthermore services from enterprise environments are virtualized in a cloud.
Network operators and system vendors need to be prepared for this change. The technical implementation is complex but offers clear competitive advantages. The awareness of management and sales for this development and the enabling of technical staff is the basis for a successful implementation.
This training offers an overview about cloud computing and clarifies the major terms and concepts.
The presentations are followed by practical exercises where the participants can get a hands-on experience working on OpenStack (Cloud Infrastructure) and OpenFlow (SDN) in a virtual environment.

Target Group/ Requirements

The course is designed for technical staff as well as managers and sales. It offers an ideal introduction and a basis for all further cloud trainings.
