What you’ll learn

The NSO Advance Python Programmers (NSO300) course builds upon the foundational knowledge acquired in the NSO201 v4.0 course, extending the expertise of Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) by incorporating advanced concepts such as customizing templates with Python programming, Docker deployment, and Nano services. Participants will gain proficiency in creating sophisticated services using the NSO application framework and Python scripting, applicable to both new and existing Layer 3 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN services.

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. Customization with Python Programming:
    • Advanced customization of templates using Python scripting.
    • Tailoring templates to specific requirements.
  2. Docker Deployment:
    • Implementation of NSO within Docker containers.
    • Understanding the practical aspects and advantages of Docker in NSO environments.
  3. Nano Services:
    • Exploration of Nano services and their role within NSO.
    • Leveraging Nano services to enhance functionality.
  4. Advanced Service Creation:
    • Creation of advanced services using the NSO application framework and Python scripting.
    • Application of skills to both new and existing Layer 3 MPLS VPN services.
  5. Service Management and Scaling:
    • Efficient management and scaling of advanced services.
    • Techniques to reduce operational consumption, enhance security, and optimize physical space with the replacement of physical hardware by virtualized network functions (VNFs).
  6. NFV Orchestration:
    • Utilization of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) orchestration features.
    • Integration of Cisco Elastic Services Controller (ESC) for the management of virtualized network functions.

Upon completion of NSO300, participants are equipped to navigate the complexities of NSO, enabling them to design, implement, and manage advanced network services efficiently in a dynamic and virtualized environment.
