Implementing Converged SDN Transport Solutions (SPSDNTXP)

Duration: 4 Days (32 Hours)

Implementing Converged SDN Transport Solutions (SPSDNTXP) Course Overview:

What you’ll learn in this course
The Implementing Converged SDN Transport Solutions (SPSDNTXP) v1.0 course provides an introduction to Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-ready architecture. This architecture revolutionizes traditional Metro network design by enabling a programmable network that can deliver a wide range of services, including residential, business, 5G mobile backhauling, video, and IoT. The premise of this architecture is simplicity, full programmability, and cloud integration with guaranteed service level agreements (SLAs).

Throughout this course, you will explore the evolution of service provider design principles, including Unified Multi protocol Label Switching (MPLS), Evolved Programmable Networks, and the Cisco® Compass Metro Fabric. These principles form the foundation for the SDN-enabled programmable network.

You will also have the opportunity to examine and configure individual components of the design, with a specific focus on segment routing and its supporting features. Segment routing is a key technology that enables efficient and scalable traffic engineering in SDN networks.

By the end of this course, you will possess a comprehensive understanding of SDN-ready architecture and its implications for service provider networks. You will be familiar with the key design principles and technologies, including Unified MPLS, Evolved Programmable Networks, and segment routing. Through hands-on configuration exercises, you will gain practical experience in implementing and optimizing SDN transport solutions.

Enroll in the Implementing Converged SDN Transport Solutions (SPSDNTXP) v1.0 course and unlock your potential to revolutionize service provider networks. Acquire the knowledge and skills to design, deploy, and manage SDN-enabled programmable networks capable of delivering diverse services with simplicity, full programmability, and cloud integration. Master the principles of Unified MPLS, Evolved Programmable Networks, and segment routing to optimize traffic engineering and ensure efficient service delivery.
