Course duration:  2 days
Price: $1,595 US

Course overview

This hands-on instructor-led course explores how the NSP telemetry-based optimization can automatically steer traffic based on changing conditions in the network.  This closed-loop automation approach significantly improves the utilization of network resources and decreases operational intervention.  Discovery how telemetry collects reliable and efficient data, thus forming the basis of closed-loop automation.  Learn the two forms of Enhanced Optimization, latency-based and utilization-based, along with the data requirements for each, such as gRPC subscriptions and scheduled OAM tests.  Understand essential parameters that control when and how LSPs are automatically optimized.  Finally, view step-by-step use case videos that show: 1) Latency based optimization to assure essential services are routed over a low latency path; 2) Utilization based optimization to reduce the probability of congestion discards and run networks at high capacities. This course is based on NSP version 23.4.
