Software-defined networking (SDN) dramatically improves control system network performance and engineering capabilities. In this course, students will learn how SDN technology accomplishes this and how to engineer networks using SDN to enhance the cybersecurity, situational awareness, and performance of operational technology (OT) networks. This hands-on course uses SDN to engineer a network supporting a motor protection system with dual sources, teaching how to design, configure, test, troubleshoot, and validate an SDN network. The student will gain experience traffic engineering a real application-driven OT Ethernet network using the SEL-5056 SDN Flow Controller and the SEL-2740S SDN Switch.
This course is intended for any engineer who will be tasked with network design, configuration, deployment, or testing.
