CANA Cisco Active Network Abstraction

Network Training Course Description:
Cisco Active Network Abstraction (Cisco ANA) is a network management foundation for Cisco-based service provider IP networks. ANA addresses the challenge of managing converged, multiservice, and multivendor IP networks through its unique model-based virtual network abstraction. Its service-aware design supports Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), Carrier Ethernet, and IP Radio Access Network (RAN)/Mobile Transport over Packet (MTOP) and extends to emerging technologies. The Cisco Active Network Abstraction (CANA) v3.7 course is a modular course that teaches students how to install, configure, customize, and effectively use the Cisco ANA product suite. The student gains understanding of the primary components of the ANA architecture; guidelines for deployment; hardware and software requirements; and the concepts, processes, and tools that allow customization of an ANA management system to meet the specific needs of the customer’s unique network. The students’ understanding is deepened by hands-on labs that include installing ANA units, gateway, and client software and utilizing the ANA applications, NetworkVision and EventVision, for network and service discovery and fault detection.
