Brandon Carroll of Global Config Technology Solutions comments:

Software Defined Networking (SDN) should be of interest to Cisco certification candidates. Why? Traditional networking functions that you learn in the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) programs are old.
