Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to classify all of the consequences of adopting Software Defined Networking (SDN) to the applications development process. Students will be able to assess the impact of SDN for the TCP/IP architecture. They will also be capable of explaining and implementing openflow-based applications. In addition, students will be capable of designing control and monitoring frameworks and writing a concept for a deploying mechanism of such tools using advanced concepts such as federation.
