This 4-day course is designed for service providers, webscale operators, and enterprises who need to understand the technology, techniques, and best practices for implementing a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution using Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS). The course provides detailed explanations and practical exercises for advanced VNS features.

After completing the course, students should be able to:
- Explain the use and configuration of the routing protocol (OSPF and BGP) on the Network Services Gateway (NSG).
- Explain the purpose and operation of the NSG Underlay Border Router (NSG-UBR).
- Describe and apply the different domain linking options.
- Describe the benefits and configuration of Application Aware Routing (AAR).
- Describe approaches to using NSG as an IKE IPSec gateway.
- Explain how a virtual machine can be instantiated on the NSG to virtualize a network function.
