Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)

Level
Intermediate
Duration
30 hours
Course Fee
₹18000
*Inclusive of GST   

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) training introduces concepts, technologies and new ways to design, deploy and manage networking services. Network Functions Virtualization allows decoupling of critical network functions such as such as NAT, DHCP, DNS, firewall, IDS from proprietary hardware appliances. These critical functions can run in software only and simplifies networking components and leads to a fully virtualized infrastructure.

Course Introduction

This 5 days OR 5 weekends, 40 hours, instructor led Network Function Virtualization (NFV) course is customized to provide candidates with extensive knowledge to accomplish their day to day jobs. Network Functions Virtualization Training, NFV Training introduces concepts, technologies and new ways to design, deploy and manage networking services. Network Functions Virtualization allows decoupling of critical network functions such as such as NAT, DHCP, DNS, firewall, IDS from proprietary hardware appliances. These critical functions are able to run in software only and simplifies networking components and leads to a fully virtualized infrastructure. This is applicable to data plane processing or control plane function in both wired and wireless network infrastructures.
