These days, millions of consumers and businesses are connected to a network in one form or another. As a result, the systems and datacenters used to transport and house content are getting bigger, more pervasive, and increasingly complex. Add to this the explosive amount of data crossing the network, and it quickly becomes apparent that enterprises and service providers face a daunting challenge. SDN and NFV both enable automated service chaining, or the dynamic provisioning of network services that support applications. Whereas network engineers once had to manually build firewalls and load balancers to support fluid applications, they can now provision them dynamically. This will eventually allow service providers to charge for specialized network services that will no longer be difficult to deploy and enterprise solutions will also begin to unfold as large enterprises deploy SDN in their data center.
SDN & NFV represents a convergence of different skills and therefore employee groups within your organization. SolutionEdge offer separate tracks to standardize skills across these groups.
Level One - SDN Associate
This certification attests and formally certifies that the successful candidate has vendor-neutral conceptual knowledge of the major domains of networking practices that support the theory and practice of Software Defined Networking (SDN). It presupposes foundational knowledge in computer networking practices, and will validate conceptual knowledge in how those computer networking foundations are affected in an SDN environment. It is an entry-level certification examination for technical professionals asserting concept-level mastery of the domain of SDN.
This certification attests and formally certifies that the successful candidate has vendor-neutral technical knowledge, skills, and abilities of the major domains of networking practices that support the theory and practice of Software Defined Networking (SDN). It presupposes deeper technical knowledge, skills, and abilities in computer networking practices, and will validate all the major aspects and domains of knowledge and practice in SDN networking environments. The certification will be considered mastery-level validation and certification examination for technical professionals in the domain of SDN networking.
