Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a revolutionary capability to speed network deployments by virtualizing server and storage infrastructure in the modern data center. Validating the functionality and performance of SDN implementations, especially those in OpenFlow, requires in-depth understanding of how they work and are implemented.
This Black Book includes functionality, pentesting, and impairment methodologies that can be used to verify device and system functionality and performance. The methodologies are universally applicable to any test equipment. Step-by-step implementation examples using Ixia's test platforms and applications are included to demonstrate the art of the possible.
