ONAP Fundamentals (LFS263)

Learn about the fundamentals of the ONAP project and how it can help transform the management and orchestration of your NFV and SDN services from fixed-function, proprietary devices to flexible, software-driven environments. This course also prepares you for the Certified ONAP Professional exam.

Who Is It For

This course is most relevant for technical teams at service providers and enterprises who develop, deploy, and scale their networks and next-generation services, especially in light of the growth in 5G and edge computing.

Prerequisites
  • This course requires a basic understanding of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
  • It also requires a basic knowledge of Linux equivalent to that obtained from the Introduction to Linux (LFS101x) course, which the Linux Foundation makes available on edX.
Lab Info
Lab exercises will be conducted on seven custom VMs (six VMs for setting up ONAP, and 1 VM for OpenStack cloud) in your GCP account. The approximate cloud cost should be $4/hour paid directly to GCP. (This can vary depending on the amount of time your VMs are running, your location, and price changes from GCP). Detailed instructions to set up your lab environment are provided in the course.
