Learn Cumulus Linux, Ansible and More!
GNS3 Linux Fundamentals: Learn Cumulus Linux, White Box switching and Ansible
The course includes hands on demonstrations using both Cumulus VX and physical switches. The best part is you can practice using GNS3 and Cumulus VX locally on your laptop!
Cumulus Linux combines the power of Open Networking with a network operating system that runs on top of industry standard networking hardware from vendors such as Dell, HP, Quanta and others.
Learn Pica8 white box switching - OpenFlow, OpenDaylight, BGP and more
Learn all tiers of the SDN Architecture:
This course explains and demonstrates white box switching technology using Pica8's operating system and physical white box switches.
Modules included: Overview of Pica8 architecture, Configure BGP on Pica8 switches, Configure OpenFlow without a controller (add flows manually to Open vSwitch)
Integrate Pica8 switches with multiple controllers: OpenDaylight, Floodlight, HP VAN
Interactive GNS3 Training with Labs!

Solarwinds Network Performance Monitor Background
Complete Course to Pass the CCNA!
Start your journey today learning about networking.
Content in this course can be used towards your CCNA. Topics such as IP addressing, subnetting and many others can be applied directly to passing your CCNA certification.
Access our online simulations so you can practice on simulated Cisco routers and switches. You will get to type commands such as enable, configure terminal, router ospf and many others and learn how to configure devices.
In this course, you will learn about topics such as IP addressing, IP subnetting, Routing, Switches, VLANs, Spanning Tree, Network Address Translation, Wireless and a whole lot more.
The course covers the following topics including Network basics, Network architectures (OSI Model), What are hubs, switches, routers?, How is data forwarded through a network?, IP addresses, IP subnetting, Cabling and network topologies, Ethernet basics, TCP and UDP, DNS and DHCP, Routing, VLANs, Cisco device initial configurations, ACLs, Network naming, IP Telephony, Quality of Service (QoS), SDN and OpenFlow
This is an introductory course explaining different visions of what SDN actually is. The course also shows you real world implementations of SDN in very large networks as well as high security networks.
You will also learn about how OpenFlow separates the control and data planes of networking devices.
You will then see a practical demonstration of an application communicating with an SDN controller and Open vSwitch devices.
