The Virtualized Network Operations Training Program includes three courses to bolster your knowledge on network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN). Below is a description of each course:
o Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Operations: In this course you will get an introduction to virtualized networks, virtualized network functions (VNFs) and VNF Descriptors. You will also learn about network services, network service descriptors and lifecycle management.
o Software Defined Networking (SDN) Operations: Learn about SDN principles and operations in during course. You will learn about yang and netconf for SDN as well as SDN in wide area networks.
o Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) ON OPENSTACK*: In this course you will get an introduction to OpenStack as a platform and the available performance options. This course will also provide a practical network service example.
This module explains the role of OpenStack* as the platform for NFV, describes the key OpenStack* components, and walks through a typical VM instantiation scenario.
This module describes the key concepts and terminology related to software defined networking, explains the underlying technologies and protocols used in SDN, and walks through examples of SDN in service provider networks.
This module describes the key concepts and terminology related to network virtualization, including NFV, SDN, and orchestration, and explains the basic network operations related to the network functions virtualization lifecycle.
