Course overview

The objectives of this module is to introduce students to general architecture and key characteristics of software-defined computer networks (SDN) and their role in modern IT systems as well as to equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills for SDN implementation.

Students learn to:
• Implement a solution based on software-defined computer network technologies
• Use program code to create scripts for computer network automation and management
• Test and troubleshoot a software-defined computer network using a structured approach
• Recommend when to use software-defined networks and when to use traditional networks

It is important for students to take this module because this is the foundational module that introduces students to SDN concepts and best practices for the implementation of SDN networks.
