NSO300 - Cisco NSO Advanced for Python Programmers v3.0

New – Introduces learners to developing advanced services using Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) programmability with Python scripting.

GK# 5394

Course Overview


This course explores how to create advanced services using the NSO application framework and Python scripting with both new and existing Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN services. Students will also learn how to manage and scale these services, and how to use NSO Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) orchestration features and Cisco Elastic Services Controller (ESC) to manage Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs).
