Course Objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Explain the driver and evolution of software-defined WAN and Nuage Networks VNS solution
  • Describe Nuage Networks VNS and the function of each of its components, including the Virtualized Services Directory (VSD), Virtualized Services Controller (VSC), and Network Services Gateway (NSG)
  • Describe the deployment of an NSG at a branch
