NSO201 – NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects v4.0


NSO201 - NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects v4.0

Course Overview

The NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects (NSO201) training 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 training provides an overview of NSO as a network automation solution as well as introducing you to NETCONF, YANG, and XPath. You will learn about managing devices and creating device templates, service management and service package creation, network element drivers, interfacing with other systems using APIs, configuring and troubleshooting system settings, managing alarms and reporting, configuring NSO for scalability and performance, and capabilities that can be added to Cisco NSO.
