Deploying Network Configuration Management and Telemetry Solutions

by Nick Russo

You've worked with network programmability before, but perhaps you'd like more hands-on across a wider variety of examples and client frameworks. This course is for you as we'll explore a wide variety of network configuration management approaches.

What you'll learn

If you run a large network and want to introduce automation, but aren't quite sure what tools or strategies to try, look no further. In this course, Deploying Network Configuration Management and Telemetry Solutions, you will learn foundational knowledge of infrastructure as code with many real-life examples and interactive challenges. First, you will improve your existing YANG/RESTCONF skills by using Python scripts to manage a variety of network features. Next, you will discover the power of RESTCONF combined with Ansible to manage network devices. The course also includes a bit of Puppet to showcase additional alternatives for enabling network automation. Finally, you will explore how to deploy and configure model-driven telemetry using the elastic stack (formerly ELK stack) and dial-in NETCONF connections. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge surrounding the tools, processes, and technologies needed to effectively manage large-scale networks using modern programmability techniques.
