If you grew up in the era of "let me touch the hardware" networking, you need to start preparing yourself for the new age of "Software Defined Networks". SDN empowers the business to control network behavior by emphasizing the software application instead of the network infrastructure. As software displaces many of the functions that hardware performs currently or performed in the past, more individuals with SDN skills are needed.
Technical and non-technical staff interested in a high-level understanding of what SDN is and how it will change the business and the networking landscape, will benefit from this opportunity to develop core competencies and prepare themselves and their teams for this emerging shift in core IT networks.
A reasonable knowledge of core networking terms and functions is desirable. Experience with IT infrastructure such as Ethernet switches, IP routers, Gateways, Firewalls, etc is ideal.
