NSO Advanced for Python Programmers1 (NSO300)

>>Purchase Cisco eLearning Subscription


The Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) Advance Python Programmers (NSO300) v4.0 course continues the learning journey of the NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects (NSO201) v4.0 course with NSO to include customizing templates with Python programming, Docker deployment, and Nano services. You will learn to create advanced services using the NSO application framework and Python scripting with both new and existing Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN services. You will also learn how to manage and scale these services to reduce operation consumption, and increase both security and available physical space, since virtualized network functions (VNFs) replace physical hardware. You will use Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) orchestration features, and Cisco Elastic Services Controller (ESC) to manage virtualized network functions.
