SDN Training

SDN is moving faster than previous networking advancements. Some teams have already deployed and are monitoring their environments, while others are just starting to ask about SDN and how it will help overcome current networking and service pains. SDN Essentials Education Services provides several SDN vendor agnostic classes that can increase the knowledge level of any team and help mitigate the risks involved in advancing to new technologies. Due to our partnerships with SDN big name companies, we also offer Vendor Specific sessions.
