Intel® Network Builders University Introduces New Intel® Network Academy Program:

The Intel® Network Academy is a comprehensive training program within the Intel® Network Builders University covering network transformation, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN), Virtual Network Functions (NFVs) and beyond. The training is intended to assist communications service providers to improve their knowledge of key Intel technologies, industry trends, and technical aspects of NFV deployments so they can take full advantage of network transformation. The courses are intended to be taken in order but may also be taken individually as desired.

This month we have launched the first half of the content on topics including:

These courses and more can be found now in the Intel Network Academy program. Please check back soon as more courses are being added later this month.

There are more than 166 courses available across five languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese & Korean), with new content released each month. The online portion of the university is available to all Intel® Network Builders program members and the public through a simple registration here. Intel Network Builders University is one of two learning centers in Intel® Builders University, which also includes the Intel® Data Center Builders University. Registrants have access to all of the content in the two learning centers.

Please take a look and after exploring the offerings, let us know what content you would like to see added to the university.
