ONAP Essentials (LFS463)

Learn about the fundamentals of the Linux Foundation ONAP project and how it can help transform the management and orchestration of your NFV and SDN services from fixed-function, proprietary devices to flexible, software-driven environments. Solidify your learning of ONAP with hands-on labs!

Who Is It For

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.
