Government is constantly delivering new, innovative services to a growing and diverse citizen base. But as these new services are created, many of the traditional and legacy networks powering government are failing to keep up. That’s a big problem that government is trying to solve in order to keep up with rising citizen expectations and demands.

One solution many organizations are turning to is software-defined networking, which can create multiple virtual networks from one physical network.


By taking this course, you will be enrolled in six different lessons exploring software-defined networking. We’ll discuss what they are, how they work, and – most importantly – why they matter. We will also examine when SDN might be right for your organization. And finally we will guide you through a series of questions to help you make that decision.

To help us understand the intricacies of this innovative technology, we’ll hear from two industry experts: Scott Sneddon, Senior Director for SDN and Cloud at Juniper Networks and Scott Ormiston, Director of Solutions Architecture at Affigent.
