The Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) Administration and DevOps (NSO303) training builds upon the foundational knowledge gained in the NSO201 and NSO300 courses, focusing on system administration and DevOps within the context of Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO). This comprehensive program serves as a robust bridge between network automation and orchestration tools, covering development, operation, and administration tasks. Participants will acquire the skills needed to set up, configure, deploy, and maintain a Cisco NSO solution, with an emphasis on best practices in DevOps.

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. System Administration:
    • Set up and configure a Cisco Network Services Orchestrator solution.
    • Deploy and maintain NSO instances, incorporating access control settings.
    • Explore real-world examples to prepare for deployment and management scenarios.
  2. DevOps Integration:
    • Understand the role of NSO in the DevOps landscape.
    • Explore modern DevOps concepts and tools, including Git and Continuous Delivery/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD).
  3. Production-Ready NSO Instances:
    • Guide through the setup of production-ready NSO instances.
    • Utilize system installation with access control settings for secure configurations.
    • Deploy NSO in Docker containers for enhanced flexibility.
  4. Migration and Device Management:
