Course Number: OP00493-C-2009
Course Duration: 3 days (including lectures and hands-on lab exercises)
Price: $2,300 US

Course overview

This hands-on instructor-led course explores the Nokia Data Center Fabric solution. It starts with a review of modern data center networking architectures and the advantages of using Layer 3 and BGP for routing. It describes the SR Linux architecture and the Nokia 7220/7250 IXR routers and introduces the Nokia Fabric Services System. Participants will make extensive use of the SR Linux CLI and learn how to configure and verify interfaces and routing protocols. Participants will also gain experience using other SR Linux logging, monitoring, and filtering tools. Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) is described in detail, and the course concludes with an overview of the use and capabilities of the Fabric Services System.
