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. Prepare yourself for the upcoming Certified ONAP Professional exam and solidify your learning of ONAP with self-paced labs!
Open source networking projects are transforming how service providers and enterprises develop, deploy, and scale their networks and next-generation services. This is especially relevant with 5G/edge computing around the corner.
The ONAP project orchestrates, manages, and automates 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 an intermediate level introduction to the Linux Foundation ONAP project:
- The basics of Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
- Overview of the ONAP project’s architecture, subprojects, and use case blueprints
- ONAP modeling overview
- Interfacing with ONAP
- Network service design, orchestration, and lifecycle management
- ONAP Policy framework
- Closed control loop automation
- Troubleshooting in ONAP.
Most chapters heavily promote hands-on learning through self-paced labs that you can run on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This course will cover all the topics required to prepare for the upcoming Certified ONAP Professional exam.
