Software Defined Networks (SDN) will change the entire communications infrastructure landscape over the coming decade. New players will come, old players who fail to adapt will disappear. In order for your organization to make its SDN journey a successful one, new skills will be required across many role types and teams. 

We offer a complete range of education and training around SDN and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) from both general and advanced engineering perspectives. Learning can be delivered in a variety of formats from online learning to deliver basic skills and understanding to a large audience, to advanced architecture and engineering courses that are delivered in the traditional instructor-led classroom environment; a format which offers the best access to our expert instructors knowledge. This range of training will inform and reward with vendor independent knowledge that will help your organization to understand the parameters and engage in discussion that will allow you to make the right choices on your SDN journey.

We also offer a complimentary range of courses around programming languages such as Python, Java and C/C++ which will develop your organisations capacity to deal with the 'software' element of SDN. Embedding software skills into your engineering community will be crucial for success.

Additionally we also have specific vendor based training such as Redhat or Suse Openstack administration courses for installation, operation and maintenance of these platforms.
