OpenStack and NFV TelcoCloud

What you’ll learn

Excellent Hands-On experience on all the OpenStack & NFV components. Build your own lab (for free) & create VMs & VNFs
Completely understand the purpose of Virtualization & Cloud computing & also understand why Openstack is essential for mobile operators.
Excellent understanding & decoupling of TelcoCloud components. Journey of a legacy Telco node from a proprietory machine to a Virtual network function (VNF).
Capacity planning for cloud infrastructure, Deep dive in Openstack networking concepts, Basic linux hands-on
ETSI – MANO, NFV & SDN concepts
Advanced OpenStack topics for VNF performance like CPU pinning, NUMA awareness & Hugepages
Advanced networking topics like OVS, DPDK & SRIOV

OpenStack and NFV TelcoCloud


Absolutely nothing. I cover everything from scratch however, it will be good to have basic knowledge of Linux & Networking
No programming knowledge required.
You just need your own time & zeal to learn this course. The biggest prerequisite is our own will-power. Rest, be assured about the contents


For C O U P O N S please connect with me on LinkedIn or by email. See the details in my Bio sectionThis course contains theory & practice for all the components of OpenStack & that too in the context of a telco cloud i.e. in the context of NFV. The main challenge in learning OpenStack is to get a lab for practice. In this course, we will learn how to build our own lab of OpenStack on Google cloud for free, so that you have a lab to practice even after the completion of the course. However, this lab is not the exact replica of a production-grade data center. Around 80% of tasks can be performed here as compared to the actual environment.The course has been designed considering the daily job of a Telco cloud operations engineer but, anyone who is interested to understand Telco cloud or Openstack, in general, can benefit from this course. It contains core concepts of NFV, VNF, ETSI/MANO, SDN & the overall cloudification of the core network & RAN.We will create flavors, images, VMs & VNFs during the course so that, you get a real-time experience of the technology.
