Network Softwarization encompasses technologies that are transforming how network and computing infrastructures are designed and operated to deliver services and applications with greater versatility, agility and cost effectiveness. Network Softwarization technologies provide the foundation for the 5G network architecture that will support future mobile, broadband, and IoT applications.
Network Softwarization requires an entirely new set of skills from the engineers that design and operate networks. The objective of the NetSoft CREATE training program is to meet this critical need in the Canadian telecom industry. Our goal is to prepare graduates with a fundamental understanding and practical experience in SDN and NFV along with the communication and teamwork skills that allow them to integrate smoothly and contribute immediately to the success of Canadian companies.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enables faster innovation by making the network programmable.
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) allows network equipment, such as routers, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems, to be replaced with software running on commodity hardware.
Management and Orchestration (MANO) systems enable the real-time provisioning of network functions.
