This self-paced e-learning course is intended for anyone that requires a technical overview of the Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP), with a focus on the Virtualized Network Services (VNS) and Virtualized Security Services (VSS) used to build an SD-WAN solution.
Learn how the VSP provides a flexible security framework that is designed to provide a secure service edge (SSE) solution tailored to satisfy end-customer requirements, and how the Nuage SD-WAN portal allows end-customers to manage and visualize application traffic within their network with minimum knowledge of the underlying SDN solution.
This course describes how the Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN solution can be used by service providers and resellers to offer a managed SD-WAN services to their customers without the need to build their own SD-WAN solution.
IP Networking Experience
Integrated online exam.
Credit toward certification
After completing the course, students should be able to:
- Describe how the Nuage Networks VSP addresses the limitations of traditional enterprise WAN architecture
- Describe how Nuage Networks Virtualized Network Services (VNS) components including the Virtualized Services Directory (VSD), Virtualized Services Controller (VSC), Network Services Gateway (NSG), Nuage SD-WAN Portal and the Nuage Utility Host (NUH) are used to build an SD-WAN service offering.
- Explain how the Nuage Networks VSD and Virtualized Security Services (VSS) provide a flexible security framework that can be used to provide a secure service edge (SSE).
- Describe valued added security services like web filtering and intrusion detection and prevention.
- Understand that IPsec IKE can be used to securely connect an NSG to a third-party gateway, cloud service provider, or router.
- Sketch out key capabilities of the Nuage SD-WAN Portal.
- Describe the Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN service offering.
- Describe the licensing model for Nuage Networks VSP and the Nokia Cloud Managed SD-WAN solutions.
