Course Overview

This advanced hands-on instructor-led course explores Nokia Orchestration and SDN for the Cloud Packet Core. The Nokia Datacenter Solution (DCS) with SDN is described with a focus on service orchestration provided by the CloudBand Network Director (CBND), Virtual Network Function (VNF) management provided by CloudBand Application Manager (CBAM). Additionally, it also explores Virtual Infrastructure Management (VIM) provided by CloudBand Infrastructure Software (CBIS). The Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) is described along with the datacenter fabric provided by the 210 WBX leaf/spine and 7750 DC Gateway (DCGW). The course concludes with a few examples of how the Nuage Network SDN solution is used by CloudBand to deploy and connect Nokia cloud packet core network functions.
