The software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) movement are underway across enterprises and service providers worldwide. Proof-of-concept trials, early limited production and even full-scale production roll-outs of SDN technology are happening today at Tier 1 service providers and large Fortune 500 enterprises.
As SDN marches rapidly down the technology adoption curve, one area that has been identified as an impediment to rapid uptake is the lack of education, training, and certification. Without a strong ecosystem around education, SDN cannot achieve the explosive growth we’re anticipating.
The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) recently launched its training and certification initiative with partners to outstanding acceptance from the market (we saw standing room crowds at the training sessions at the SDN and OpenFlow World Congress in Dusseldorf in October).
If you’re in the technology infrastructure business, you need to learn all you can about the cutting-edge in SDN education and training. For managers, understand what resources are available to educate yourself and your team on the SDN revolution in networking to ensure you don’t miss out on the benefits of SDN. For infrastructure engineers, improve your productivity with SDN and learn the next most critical must-have skill that employers will be recruiting for.
