Cisco Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)

NFV Overview

Course Description

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) training introduces concepts, technologies and new ways to design, deploy and manage networking services. Network Functions Virtualization allows decoupling of critical network functions such as such as NAT, DHCP, DNS, firewall, IDS from proprietary hardware appliances. These critical functions can run in software only and simplifies networking components and leads to a fully virtualized infrastructure.

 Course Introduction

This course is customized to provide candidates with extensive knowledge to accomplish their day to day jobs. Network Functions Virtualization Training, NFV Training introduces concepts, technologies and new ways to design, deploy and manage networking services. Network Functions Virtualization allows decoupling of critical network functions such as such as NAT, DHCP, DNS, firewall, IDS from proprietary hardware appliances. These critical functions are able to run in software only and simplifies networking components and leads to a fully virtualized infrastructure. This is applicable to data plane processing or control plane function in both wired and wireless network infrastructures.

Course Highlights

The key to a high success rate is based on the program’s objectives as follows:

  • Project manager can be assigned to track candidates’ performance
  • Curriculum based on course outlines defined by NFV and Industry Experts.
  • This Instructor-led classroom course is designed with an aim to build theoretical knowledge supplemented by ample hands-on lab exercises
  • Facility of Lab on cloud available (based on booking)
  • Courseware includes reference material to maximize learning.
  • Assignments and test to ensure concept absorption.
  • Courseware includes reference material to maximize learning.
  • Assignments and test to ensure concept absorption.
