NSO303 - Cisco NSO Administration and DevOps

Course Overview

The Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) Administration and DevOps (NSO303) v4.0 course continues the learning journey of the NSO Essentials for Programmers and Network Architects (NSO201) v4.0 and NSO Advanced for Python Programmers (NSO300) v4.0 courses by introducing you to the system administration and DevOps focusing on NSO; the robust bridge linking network automation and orchestration tools, examining the development, operation, and administration task functions. You will learn how to set up, configure, deploy, and maintain a Cisco Network Services Orchestrator solution, and learn best practices for using DevOps. The examples shown in this course demonstrate real-world scenarios to prepare you for deployment and management of new or existing NSO instances. The course guides you through the setup of a production ready NSO instances using system installation with access control settings, the deployment of NSO in Docker containers, and introduces modern DevOps concepts and tools such as Git and Continuous Delivery/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD). You will learn how to migrate CDM devices, how to build NETCONF NEDs from the NSO CLI, how to handle NSO Alarms, and many more features that benefit you in your journey with Cisco NSO.

This course will help you:

Install, configure, and maintain a Cisco Network Services Orchestrator solution
