NSP Service Fulfillment Design

Course number: OS00101-W-2100

Course duration: 2 hours

Course Overview

This eLearning enables the learner to develop a solid theoretical and practical understanding of NSP Intent-Based Service Fulfillment (IBSF) from a planning and design perspective.  Discover the concept of Intent-Based Networking and the relationship between service intent types and service intents.  Learn to utilize NSP predefined service intent types for off-the-shelf service topologies or use them as a base to create your own customized service intent types. Also, learn how to use the NSP Service Fulfillment application to create service templates that define the relationship between the service offering and the underlying service intent and respective attributes.  Understand the integration of the NSP workflow manager for automation.  See how workflows are assigned to service templates as automation rules and run upon the success or failure of a particular service fulfillment lifecycle state.
