Skip About this course

Open source networking projects are transforming how service providers and enterprises develop, deploy, and scale their networks and next-generation services.

Is your organization embarking on an NFV transformation journey? Do you believe open source software will play a critical role in this journey? Are you unclear how to integrate and test large, complex open source projects for your NFV use case? If yes, this course is for you.

This course introduces you to the fundamentals of Anuket. Starting with an overview of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Anuket, it delves into the challenges Anuket solves, then provides an overview of the specification, implementation, and compliance projects under the Anuket project. This course is designed to provide a guide for navigating, participating, and benefiting from the Anuket community.

The Linux Foundation Anuket project facilitates the development and evolution of NFV components by providing specifications and integrating open source software across various open source ecosystems. The test specifications provide concrete requirements for Communication Service Providers (CSP) and vendors, while the software projects provide reference implementations to the specifications along with some supporting projects.

This course is designed for everyone seeking high-level understanding and business perspective of the Anuket project and a guide for navigating, participating, and benefiting from the Anuket community. The course is also meant for vendors that wish to determine how to position or sell their products into the NFV ecosystem including verification testing.
