NSP Telemetry

Course number: OS00107-W-2100

Course duration: 2 hours

Price: $250 

Course Overview

This eLearning course enables the learner to develop a solid theoretical and practical understanding of telemetry-based network monitoring and statistics collection using Nokia’s Network Services Platform (NSP).  Discover the prerequisites and associated procedures for implementing telemetry in your NSP managed network, such as the setup of gRPC with TLS and the creation and/or installation of statistics definition and device mapping files.  Understand what a telemetry subscription is and how to create and manage them using the NSP Insights Administrator application.  Verify subscriptions are enabled and view the real-time telemetry data.  Learn to define how telemetry data is aggregated and how long it is retained in the database.  Using the Nokia Developer Portal references, see how subscriptions are created using NSP RESTCONF APIs.

Course objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Define telemetry in the context of the NSP
  • Describe the gRPC framework and its key components
  • Summarize the benefits and functions of NSP Telemetry
  • Contrast gathering telemetry from NFM-P managed nodes versus NSP managed nodes
  • Explain the difference between Stats Definition and Device Mapping files
  • Demonstrate how to create and install Stats Definition and Device Mapping files
  • Explain the different components of a service intent type
  • Explain the role of the service template
  • Describe and demonstrate how to add network-related and non-network related attributes
  • Describe what a suggest function is
  • Create customized service intents by adding, editing and removing attributes
  • Create service templates that contain workflows
  • Describe and use the RESTConf gateway for service fulfillment
