INE expert instructor Keith Bogart's new course Introducing NETCONF & RESTCONF for Enterprise Networks is now available.SNMP is a great tool for obtaining statistics about your network, such as packet counts, interface status, and overall device health, while the Command Line Interface (CLI) has been used for decades for configuring devices.
But as Network Programmability and Automation become more than simply buzzwords, both SNMP and CLI fall short in providing a vendor-neutral, standardized way to represent data and securely configure devices. This is where YANG, NETCONF, and RESTCONF come into play.
This course is designed to help you understand what role NETCONF, RESTCONF, and YANG play in this emerging realm of Network Automation and Programmability. We'll start with an introductory session on Data Modeling where you'll learn what YANG modules are, where they can be found, and how to view them. Then we'll move into how NETCONF and RESTCONF are used as transport mechanisms to securely deliver data that meets YANG standards.
If you've wanted to learn what YANG, NETCONF, and RESTCONF are, then this course is for you.
