Course Description

Open source networking projects are transforming how service providers and enterprises develop, deploy, and scale their networks and next-generation services. The ONAP project orchestrates and manages network services based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) to bring agility, higher customer satisfaction and lower costs. This course aims to provide you the conceptual and hands-on skills around ONAP, focusing on:

  • The basics of Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
  • An introduction to The Linux Foundation ONAP project
  • Overview of the ONAP project’s architecture, subprojects and demos
  • Hands-on learning through four self-paced labs you can run on GCP

Is your organization embarking on an SDN/NFV transformation journey? Do you believe open source software will play a critical role in this journey? Are you unclear how to manage and orchestrate network services for your SDN/NFV use case? Do you want to gain a hands-on understanding of how ONAP works across the design, runtime and closed loop automation? If yes, this course is for you — in addition to the theoretical learning, the course includes lab exercises that you can run on the Google Cloud Platform for a deeper learning of each of ONAP’s functional areas.

This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding and basic hands-on knowledge of the ONAP project and a guide for navigating, participating, and benefiting from the ONAP community. The course is also meant for vendors that wish to determine how to position or sell their products into the ONAP ecosystem.

Why Train With The Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation is the go-to source for training on virtually every aspect of Linux and many other open source technologies. Here are a few things that make us the right choice to be your training partner:

  1. We are the non-profit organization that, hosts Linux and many other open source projects, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released).
  2. Being so close to the kernel, we are constantly updating our training to ensure that we are teaching you the most up-to-date information. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
  3. We don't sell any software or support services so there's no hidden sales agenda in our material. Our only goal is to help you learn the material.
  4. When you train with The Linux Foundation, you're learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you're using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.
