Course Overview

This course is designed for IT operators and network administrators responsible for the support and operation of an integrated Nuage Networks/ OpenStack network. It provides an in-depth look at the OpenStack and Nuage Networks Virtual Services Platform (VSP) architecture. Students will install Nuage Networks plug-ins and learn the techniques to
verify the deployment operation. Students will also explore common networking scenarios, including theoretical, configuration, and troubleshooting techniques. Students practice what they learn through several hands-on lab exercises.
