Implementing Cloud-Native Contrail Networking (CN2)


Course Overview

This four-day course provides in-depth instructions on Cloud-Native Contrail Networking (CN2) in an upstream Kubernetes environment. Students will learn to use UI, and CLI commands to perform configuration and monitoring tasks. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience with the features of Cloud-Native Contrail Networking. This course is based on CN2 Release 22.4.

This course will follow a use case where students start with a standard Kubernetes environment and CN2 as the Container Networking Interface. Students will configure and verify each phase of a use case.
