NSP Model-Driven Management

Course Number: OS00109-W-2000
Course Duration: 2 hours 
Price: $250 US

Course Overview

This eLearning explores how the NSP delivers device-independent network mediation through model-driven (MD) functionalities and applications.  Discover how the NSP uses hot-pluggable "adaptors" to convert generic application requests to device-specific directives using standard protocols such as NETCONF, SNMP and CLI.  Learn the different adaptor types and how to obtain them while gaining knowledgeable insights into their installation procedures.  Equip yourself with crucial model-driven management procedures through step by step use case examples, including preparing network elements for model-driven management, discovering an MD aware network element using the NSP Device Administrator, configuring discovered MD network elements using the NSP Modeled Device Configurator, and viewing discovered MD network element state information using the NSP Modeled Device Configurator.

Course Objectives
