Learn about the fundamentals of the Linux Foundation OPNFV project and how it can help accelerate your Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) transformation from fixed-function, proprietary devices to flexible, software-driven environments. Solidify your learning of OPNFV with self-paced labs!
Managers, technologists at Communications Service Providers (CSPs), technologists and business leaders at technology vendors.
While you will be provided with all the necessary images as part of your enrollment, you will need your own Google Cloud Platform account to work on the labs.
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? Are you a hands-on type of a person? If yes, this course is for you.
The Linux Foundation Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) project 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 introduces you to the fundamentals of OPNFV. Starting with an overview of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and OPNFV, it delves into the challenges OPNFV solves, then provides an overview of the feature, integration, and testing OPNFV projects, industry use cases and benefits. In addition to the theoretical learning, the course includes lab exercises that you can run on the Google Cloud Platform. These lab exercises revolve around deployment and testing, for a deeper learning of each of OPNFV’s key areas.
This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding and basic hands-on knowledge of the OPNFV project and a guide for navigating, participating, and benefiting from the OPNFV community. It is also meant for vendors that wish to determine how to position or sell their products into the NFV ecosystem including verification testing.
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:
- 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).
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
