Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects (v3.0) (NSO201)

 

Course Overview

The Cisco NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects (NSO201) course introduces you to Cisco® Network Services Orchestrator (NSO). You will learn to install Cisco NSO and use it to manage devices and create services based on YANG templates with XPath. This course provides a brief overview of NSO as a network automation solution, as well as an introduction to NETCONF, YANG, and XPath. You will learn about service packages, network element drivers, and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The course also covers service creation, device and configuration management, NSO maintenance, NSO options and integrations, and basic NSO troubleshooting.
