Workload:
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
None.
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Damian Weber
Lecturer:
Prof. Joberto Martins

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to classify all of the consequences of adopting Software Defined Networking (SDN) to the applications development process. Students will be able to assess the impact of SDN for the TCP/IP architecture. They will also be capable of explaining and implementing openflow-based applications. In addition, students will be capable of designing control and monitoring frameworks and writing a concept for a deploying mechanism of such tools using advanced concepts such as federation.
