There is a fundamental shift occurring in network engineering skill set requirements as open networking and Software-Defined Networking technologies continue their rapid deployments. DevOps will have a larger role in network purchases. New network designs are emerging, thanks to virtual overlays, white box networking, Linux-based network-programming tools, OpenFlow based pSwitches and vSwitches, etc. The CCIE skills set is being augmented with SDN skills and know-how. To keep competitive and relevant in the networking industry job market, you need SDN skills. ONUG Academy offers five tutorials taught by the experts who are deploying and developing open networking/SDN standards plus technology, including:
T1: Understanding and Deploying Virtual Networks by: Srini Seetharaman, Technical Lead for SDN at Deutsche Telecom
T2: Getting Started with OpenFlow Deployments by: Brent Salisbury, University of Kentucky
T3: Integrating OpenFlow and OpenStack by: Rob Sherwood, Open Networking Foundation Chair of Architecture and Framework Working Group
T4: Understanding White Box Networking Architecture and Economics by: JR Rivers, Co-Founder and CEO of Cumulus Networks
T5: Writing SDN Applications on Popular Controllers by: Matt Davy and Chuck Black, Tallac Networks
These tutorials and instructors were defined and handpicked by the ONUG Board, respectively, who are sending their networking, virtualization and DevOps teams, so should you. Here’s a 3-minute video on why you should enroll in ONUG Academy.
