Network Functions Virtualization Training, NFV Training by TONEX

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.

Network Functions Virtualization Training course starts with a discussion of the benefits and motivation of NFV and overview of NFV architecture, NVF components, NFV NFV requirements and implementation challenges, and enablers provided by LTE and IMS network functions.You will also learn how Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies and NFV can be integrated.

Network Functions Virtualization Training helps  network providers  and Communication Service Provider (CSP) to accelerate the deployment of new network services to support their revenue and growth objectives without the constraints of hardware-based appliances and utilizing more standard IT virtualization technologies to their networks.

Learn how to use IT virtualization technologies and standards that run on high-volume service, switch and storage hardware to virtualize network functions. Understand how virtualization enables a hardware platform, such as a server, storage device or network resource, in software  as a “virtual instance. Explore how NVF virtualizes network services via software to enable operators to reduce CapEx and OpEX, accelerate time-to-market to develop and introduce new products and services and adding agility and flexibility to their operations and service offering. Learn how to consolidate and virtualize network equipments such as high volume servers, switches and storage, and other nodes in datacentres and in the end-user premises.
