MEF-NF Online Digital eLearning Course: A Guide to Network Foundations

$595.00

MEF-NF will provide you with an overview of MEF’s Software-Driven Network Vision and the important technologies that contribute towards this vision. It also assists in preparing for the MEF Network Foundations Professional Certification Exam (MEF-NF) that validates concept-level understanding of key Network terms, processes, and elements.

A transformation in data communications networks accelerates network operators’ abilities to deliver self-service, on-demand services over interconnected, multi-operator networks. The MEF’s Software-Driven Network Vision embodies this transformation by combining the on-demand agility and ubiquity of the Internet with the performance and security assurances of Carrier Ethernet Services.

Based on Network as a Service (NaaS) principles, the goal is to enable agile networks that deliver assured connectivity services orchestrated across network domains between physical or virtual service endpoints.

Product Description

MEF Network Foundations (MEF-NF) Online Digital eLearning Course: A Guide to Network Foundations.

MEF Network Foundations (MEF-NF) is the foundation credential in a stack of professional-level certifications called the MEF Network Certification Framework. It validates at a concept level, the key terms, processes, and elements of today’s programmable networks.

This online course prepares you to take the certification exam.

This training consists of:

  • 5 eLearning videos

At the “Essential” level of the MEF Professional Certification Framework, is MEF-NF certification. It is a vendor-neutral exam and certification which test you at a conceptual knowledge level on the major domains of software-driven networking.

After completing MEF-NF, you will be able to:

  • Define and explain the characteristics and key benefits of an SDN solution
  • Compare the different characteristics of an SDN solution to those of its network predecessor
  • Understand how the various SDN technologies relate to each other and the major challenges presented Define and explain the characteristics and key benefits of an NFV solution
  • Compare the different characteristics of an NFV solution to those of its network predecessor
  • Understand how the various NFV technologies relate to each other and the major challenges presented by the move to an NFV networks
  • Define and explain the key characteristics and key benefits of an LSO solution
  • Compare the different characteristics of an LSO solution to those of its network predecessor
  • Understand how the various LSO technologies relate to each other and the major challenges presented by the move to an NFV networks
  • Define and explain the characteristics and key benefits of an Carrier-based Connectivity Services
  • Explain the roles of the organizations/actors involved in buying and selling carrier-based connectivity services
  • Understand the major challenges presented in deploying a carrier-based connectivity solution and how a solution would be implemented to leverage its benefits
  • Define and explain the characteristics and key benefits of the Network Foundations connectivity/functional service
  • Explain the predecessors to the Network Foundations as well as explain the major challenges in deploying the Network Foundations connectivity/functional service
  • Understand how the combinations of SDN, NFV, and LSO/orchestration are leveraged to form the Network Foundations connectivity/functional solutionsby the move to an SDN networks
