Fabric Life Cycle with Nokia Fabric Services System

Course number: OP00088
Course duration: 2 days (including lectures and hands-on lab exercises)
Price: $1,595

Course overview

This hands-on instructor-led course describes the purpose and capabilities of using the Nokia Fabric Services System to support intent-based automation for all phases of the data center fabrics (Day 0, Day 1, and Day 2+). It describes the use of Nokia certified templates to configure fabric intents and workload intents. Participants will make extensive use of the Fabric Services System and learn how to design, configure and deploy leaf/spine fabric intent, backbone intent, and workload intent in a digital sandbox. Participants will also verify the underlay connectivity and Layer 2/Layer 3 EVPN services in containerized SR Linux nodes.

Course objectives

After completing the course, participants should be able to:
 

  • Describe how the Nokia Fabric Services System supports Day 0, Day 1 and Day 2+ operations

  • Explain the function of the Fabric Services System digital sandbox 

  • Describe the characteristics of intent-based automation 

  • Describe the concepts of fabric intent, workload intent, and maintenance intent

  • Configure a deployment region using the Fabric Services System GUI

 

 

  • Configure a fabric intent and a workload intent using Nokia certified templates in the Fabric Services System GUI

  • Examine fabric intent code and node configuration files generated from the fabric intent and workload intent

  • Describe the purpose and benefits of using a region’s deployment pipeline 

  • Deploy fabric intents and workload intents to the Fabric Services System digital sandbox

  • Connect to the containerized SR Linux nodes to verify the underlay connectivity and Layer 2/Layer 3 EVPN services

Course modules

Module 1 – Nokia Fabric Services System Overview

  • Describe the purpose and benefits of using the Fabric Services System in the data center
  • Describe how the Fabric Services System supports Day 0, Day 1 and Day 2+ operations
  • Explain the purpose and use of the digital sandbox
  • Explain the intent-based framework in the Fabric Services System
  • Describe the characteristics of fabric intent, workload VPN intent, and maintenance intent
  • Define an intent deviation 

Module 2 - Building a Data Center Fabric 

  • Describe how to define a deployment region
  • Describe how to use a Nokia certified template to create leaf/spine fabric intent and backbone intent in a region
  • Examine the intent code and the node configuration files generated for the fabric intent
  • Show the list of fabric intent-specific elements in the fabric inventory 
  • Describe how to associate planned nodes in the fabric intent with real hardware nodes
  • Describe the use of the region’s deployment pipeline to deploy leaf/spine fabric intent and backbone intent
  • Deploy the fabric intents and verify the status of the intent after the deployment
  • Connect to the containerized SR Linux nodes to verify the IP connectivity and BGP peers for the underlay connectivity associated with the fabric intents

 

Module 3 – Ongoing Operations with Fabric Services System

  • Explain how the Fabric Services System discovers and resolves intent deviation  
  • Describe how to use a Nokia certified template to create workload intent in a region  
  • Examine the node configuration files generated for the workload intent 
  • Deploy the workload intents and verify the status of the intent after the deployment 
  • Connect to the containerized SR Linux nodes to verify the IP-VRF and MAC-VRF network instances, as well as Layer 2 and Layer 3 EVPN-VXLAN services associated with the workload intents
