Auto Draft


  • 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.

This 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.
