SDN, OpenFlow and NFV Deep Dive

Training with Ivan Pepelnjak in Stockholm

Course title:

SDN, OpenFlow and NFV Deep Dive





SDNit is proud to present this advanced technical SDN course targeting senior networking engineers who will become the future specialists/experts for the SDN technology transformation.

SDNit are aiming with this specific event to boost SDN competence within the Nordic region. To do this we provide a very technical detailed training event led by Ivan Pepelnjak who is in our mind perfect for this assignment. We are also aiming to gather a very high technical audience for this specific event which hopefully will lead to a lot of interesting discussions and experience sharing.


OpenFlow, Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies fuel the latest hype bubble in the networking industry and service provider environments.

Based on vendor and industry press promises, well-published OpenFlow deployment with Google’s internal network, and numerous other industry initiatives, these technologies became an unavoidable boardroom discussion as service providers and enterprises try to seek new revenue streams or optimize their costs.

On the other hand, many engineers are left wondering what’s really going on behind the scenes and how useful these technologies might be in real-life networks.

This training describes the technologies of Software Defined Networking (SDN), OpenFlow and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), their advantages and pitfalls, and the potential use cases including a brief overview of some existing deployments. The focus of the presentation is on real-life deployment scenarios and design discussions.

Target Audience

Network architects, designers and implementation engineers working in environments that are evaluating the viability or plan to deploy SDN solutions based on OpenFlow, BGP, NFV or other related technologies.

About the Author and the Instructor

Ivan Pepelnjak, CCIE#1354 (Emeritus), has been designing and implementing large-scale service provider and enterprise networks using advanced and emerging technologies since 1990.

Ivan started analyzing OpenFlow-based solutions and writing about OpenFlow technology and SDN concepts in early 2011. He was moderating the first-ever OpenFlow symposium in Silicon Valley in September 2011, had SDN presentations at RIPE and other regional ISP meetings, ran full-day SDN trainings at Interop and Troopers, and created OpenFlow/SDN webinars for NEC, VMware and Nuage Networks.

Ivan published two books on SDN and Openflow in 2014, and helped large multinational organizations and equipment vendors familiarize themselves with SDN concepts, evaluate their SDN strategies, and plan and design SDN pilots. He’s also author of several Cisco Press books, prolific blogger at and author of a series of highly successful webinars.
