[NWV_410] Orchestration and NFV Workshop *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

Service providers are moving to Software-Defined Networking (SDN) architecture to bring new services to their customers faster while reducing the cost of managing their global network. This course is designed to provide conceptual yet practical examples of where various technologies are applied to a service provider’s network and how the network transitions from today’s physical network to tomorrow’s virtualized and agile networks. The focus will be on technologies such as OpenStack IaaS, NFV (Network Functions Virtualization), SDN, APIs (Application Programming Interface), Network Analytics as well as Orchestration and how they all come together to create software-defined programmable agile networks.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the participant will be able to:
• Communicate effectively using proper virtualization terminology
• List business drivers and impacts for SDN and NFV
• Sketch the conceptual architecture of Software-Defined Networking
• Discuss fundamental technical concepts and value proposition behind virtualization, OpenStack, NFV, SDN, APIs and Orchestration
• Illustrate how NFV, SDN, SFN, OpenStack, MANO (Orchestration) and OSS/BSS work together to enable agile network service deployment
• Illustrate how Physical Infrastructure (underlay) and Virtual Networks (overlay) coexist and operate
• List key challenges and possible migration paths
• Compare current and future capacity, reliability and performance management paradigms
• Illustrate key use cases for network virtualization

Intended Audience

This course is designed for professionals who are looking for an technical.
