Course Description

Open source networking projects are transforming how service providers and enterprises develop, deploy, and scale their networks and next-generation services.

Is your organization embarking on an NFV transformation journey? Do you believe open source software will play a critical role in this journey? Are you unclear how to integrate and test large, complex open source projects for your NFV use case? If yes, this course is for you.

This course offers an introduction to The Linux Foundation OPNFV project (Open Platform for NFV), providing the basics of Network Function Virtualization (NFV). It delves into the challenges OPNFV solves, with an overview of related projects and industry use cases. We will also discuss how you can benefit from OPNFV.

The Linux Foundation Open Platform for NFV project (OPNFV) facilitates the development and evolution of NFV components across various open source ecosystems. Through system level integration, deployment, and testing, OPNFV creates a reference NFV platform to accelerate the transformation of enterprise and service provider networks.

This course is designed to provide a high-level understanding and business perspective of the OPNFV project and a guide for navigating, participating, and benefiting from the OPNFV community. The course is also meant for vendors that wish to determine how to position or sell their products into the NFV ecosystem including verification testing.
