Description

Automation has been identified as one of the main ways for service providers and large enterprises to reduce cost. This is becoming more and more important in modern business, where the average return per user is diminishing year by year. Software-defined networking (SDN) principles deliver abstractions of existing network infrastructure, which enable faster service development and deployment. Standards such as NETCONF and YANG are currently the driving force behind these abstractions and are enabling a significant improvement in network management.
The Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) Advanced Design (NSO300) is a 3-day instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course that introduces learners to the development of advanced services using Cisco NSO.

Objectives

After finishing this course, you will be able to:
  • Access external data from service models
  • Understand and use the Reactive Fastmap principle
  • Create YANG service models to accommodate the provisioning of Layer 2 VPNs across network devices
  • Create YANG service models to accommodate the provisioning of Layer 3 VPNs across network devices
  • Describe how service stacking works
  • Describe the process of designing, deploying, and orchestrating a cloud VPN service
  • Describe the process of deploying and integrating a Cisco Elastic Services Controller with Cisco NSO
