The Cavell Group will be sponsoring the NV & SDN Europe in Madrid with Sam Critchley, Co-Founder and Non-Executive Director, speaking on the panel about “Operational Challenges of SDN & NFV”.
Cavell is at the forefront of most new technologies and SDN is no exception, with both our training and professional service teams executing projects in this area already. The Cavell Group Training team offers a variety of open enrolment classes and onsite instruction. Recently, Cavell ran a 1 day class – SDN Enablement Day – in London for Juniper Networks customers, covering the details of Juniper’s SDN solution: Contrail. In April, Cavell also ran a 2 day SDN Bootcamp, this time in Madrid, on behalf of Juniper and for some of Juniper’s large Spanish customers and other players – Telefonica, Atos, Acuntia, Indra and Tecnocom, at the end of which students had the chance to configure the platform and practice with different controllers, using the Mininet emulator and programming flows to push onto the network.
Mike Graham, Director of Professional Services and Training at Cavell Group, says: “It is our goal to be our customers’ dedicated source for all SDN Education & Training. If you ask us what on-demand network programmability means, we’ve got the answer.”
We believe SDN is moving faster than previous networking advancements. Some teams are already deployed and monitoring while others are just starting to ask about SDN and how it will help. Cavell has recently become an ONF Certified SDN Training Partner and works with SDN Essentials, thus being able to help everyone’s team, making training and learning all the acronyms, vendors and protocols less daunting.
