About ONAP Fundamentals Training (LFS263)

The ONAP Fundamentals Training addresses an increasing need for a common interface that enables telecommunications, cable, and cloud networks and their solution providers to deliver differentiated network services on-demand, profitably, and competitively, thus leveraging existing investments.

This course is most appropriate for technical teams at service providers and businesses that implement, develop, and scale their networks and next-generation services, especially in light of the growth of 5G and edge computing.
The topics discussed in this course closely correlate with the skills domains assessed by the Accredited ONAP Professional exam (which will be available in late 2020) which will significantly improve students’ ability to become certified.

ONAP Fundamentals Training LAB INFO

The lab exercises will be performed on seven custom VMs in your GCP account (six for setting up ONAP and one for OpenStack cloud). The average cloud expense is $4/hour charged directly to GCP. (This will vary based on how long your VMs are going, your venue, and GCP price changes.) The course provides specific guidance for setting up your lab space.


This ONAP Fundamentals Training covers:

  • The principles of Network Function Virtualization (NFV),
  • An outline of ONAP design, subprojects, and usage case blueprints,
  • ONAP modeling, interfacing with ONAP,
  • Network process setup, orchestration, and lifecycle management,
  • The ONAP Policy framework closed control loop automation and troubleshooting 

ONAP Fundamentals Training – What is ONAP?

ONAP stands for Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP). Founded by AT&T and China Mobile, it is governed by the Linux Foundation. In order to provide the capabilities for the full lifecycle management of VNF (Virtual Network Functions), NFV (Network Functions Virtualization), SDN (Software Defined Networks), and all of the services that are required by these technologies, the ECOMP and Open-O projects have been combined into ONAP, an initiative called ONAP.

It should be noted that ONAP’s major objective is to provide the necessary features for orchestration and management of the whole lifecycle of VNF installations. ONAP is a network automation platform that operates above the infrastructure layer. ONAP enables infrastructure-to-product connectivity for end users. It enables completely automated VNF instals and network scalability.

As an overview, the high-level architecture of ONAP is separated into two distinct environments: one for design and one for execution, in order to implement the planned platforms. When a new release is made, the ONAP community creates blueprints for a variety of use cases that anybody may utilise right away.

ONAP is poised to usher in a new era of networking innovation. Open network automation platform, or ONAP, is the name given to the software that oversees networks that have been designed only in software. What’s all the fuss about this Virtual Networking (VNF) anyway? To virtualize whole classes of network node functions into building blocks that may be connected or chained to form communication services, VNF – Network Functions Virtualization – is a network architecture concept.

How ONAP Works?

Many different software subsystems were merged to create ONAP, and these subsystems may be broken down into two key architectural framework parts: – The platform is defined, designed, and programmed via the design-time framework. The following subsystems are included in the design-time framework: – SDC – It specifies, replicates, and verifies assets and their related processes and policies.

This is a service design and creation Using policy, conditions, requirements, restrictions, characteristics, or needs related to the assets provided, maintained, or enforced may be instantiated and rules can be created and deployed. To carry out the design phase’s programmed logic, a run-time framework is needed. Along with Active and Available Inventory, it has the following subsystems: 

  • Controllers
  • Dashboard
  • Active and Available Inventory (AAI)
  • Events, Data Collection, and Analytics (DCAE)
  • The Master Services Orchestrator (MSO)
  • ONAP Optimisation Framework (OOF)
  • Framework for Safety

Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) Advantages

  • Quickly add new features.
  • It’s easy to set up on the go.
  • Provide full-service lifecycle orchestration in a dynamic manner.
  • An architecture based on metadata and policy.
  • Scalability at the carrier level.
  • Closed-loop control.
  • All components may be managed via a single portal.
  • A completely automated system eliminates the need for any human intervention.
  • No vendor lock-in; a wide variety of VNFs to select from.
  • Scalable: rather than scaling up, consider scaling out.
  • Manage numerous network services from a single dashboard.
  • Be a part of the 5G/IoT revolution!
  • Enhance the customer’s overall satisfaction.

ONAP Best Practices

  • Code Signing Initiative (CSPI) Badging Program.
  • Management and protection of user credentials.
  • Scans of the source code.
  • VNF package security


A COP candidate must be able to onboard Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), schedule and implement network services, and configure VNFs. Candidates must also provide a basic understanding of closed-loop automation, such as closed-loop design and runtime behavior. A candidate may also have basic troubleshooting experience in order to find conflicts with network networks and closed-loops.

According to Payscale the average salary for a Kubernetes experts in the U.S. is $117k per year.
