NSP Service Fulfillment

Course number: OS00102-W-2100

Course duration: 2 hours

Course Overview

This eLearning course enables learners to develop a solid theoretical and practical understanding of service provisioning and activation using the NSP intent-based service fulfillment framework.  Learn how brownfield services are discovered and managed in the NSP Service Fulfillment application and have granular control over a service’s entire life cycle.  This allows increased flexibility by defining services without deploying them to the network, resource reservation, deploying services that are fully in sync with the service intent and removing services from the network while keeping the config safe within the NSP.  Learn how to create service templates that define the relationship between the service offering, underlying service intent and respective attributes.  View multiple service fulfillment demonstrations such as creating and deploying a new service, editing existing services, applying Quality of Service (QoS) to Service Access Points (SAPs) and performing audit and sync operations.  Finally, learn basic service assurance using the service supervision application, monitor service operations using activity logs, and even identify common service fulfillment errors.
