Cisco NSO Advanced for Python Programmers (NSO300)


Course Overview

The Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) Advanced Design (NSO300) course is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Cisco® Learning Services. The course introduces learners to the development of advanced services using Cisco NSO.

Automation has been identified as one of the main ways for service providers and large enterprises to reduce cost. This is becoming more and more important in modern business, where the average return per user is diminishing year by year. Software-defined networking (SDN) principles deliver abstractions of existing network infrastructure, which enable faster service development and deployment. Standards such as NETCONF and YANG are currently the driving force behind these abstractions and are enabling a significant improvement in network management.

Who should attend

The primary audience for this course is system installers, system integrators, system administrators, network administrators, and solutions designers.


Cisco recommends that you have the following prerequisite knowledge and skills:

  • Knowledge and skills that can be obtained by attending the Cisco Network Services Orchestrator Foundation (NSO100) class or equivalent
  • Basic knowledge of the Cisco command-line interface (CLI)
  • Basic knowledge of the CLI of UNIX-like operating systems
  • Basic knowledge of YANG data modeling
  • Basic knowledge of Java or Python software development
