Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject is meant to provide students with knowledge and understanding of advanced concepts and technologies used in modern datacenter computer networks. Students are led to practically design and implement both basic and advanced network functions in the Software-Defined Networks environment.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


In this course, students are introduced to the concept of software-defined networks (SDN). Students gradually apply their knowledge and understanding of traditional network technologies in an SDN environment by design and implementation of various network topologies and functions in simmulation environment and hardware. This subject assumes good knowledge in computer networks and basic knowledge of scripting programming languages.
