Are you a network professional who wants to start automating network tasks and manage network devices from various vendors?
Are you looking to become a better network engineer and start learning network programming?
Or maybe you're seeking a raise or even a career change?
Join thousands of successful students who have decided to upgrade their networking skills and boost their careers using this Python Network Programming course series!
This course covers many networking vendors and network operating systems:
- Cisco IOS
- Cisco IOS XE
- Cisco IOS XR
- Juniper JunOS
- Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS
- Arista EOS
- HP ProCurve OS
- Avaya ERS OS
This Python Network Programming course is aimed at network professionals having little or no experience in network automation and a great desire to use Python and a lot of very smart Python modules to program their network devices and tasks. This hands-on Python Network Programming training walks you through lots of scenarios, networking vendors and useful tools to help you become the network engineer.
Well, let me tell you what's this course all about:
- Learning to use amazing Python libraries and tools to manage network devices easily and without writing too much code.
- Connecting remotely to network devices and read/extract/display/store command output, using interactive Python scripts, on: Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
- Configuring (one or more) network devices remotely, using interactive Python scripts, either by specifying the commands at the prompt OR asking the script to read them from one or more text files, on: Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
- Executing configuration commands on multiple network devices from multiple vendors simultaneously.
- Working with a device inventory in XML/JSON/CSV format and network metadata, while easily counting your registered network devices, getting device information by IP address, searching and listing device information, checking IP reachability and SSH availability and much more, using a simple but efficient tool in the Python interpreter or Linux shell.
- Managing network device credentials in a centralized, encrypted file.
- Managing access lists and converting access lists from one format to another using a very efficient tool (Example: Converting a Cisco IOS ACL to a Juniper JunOS ACL with a single command).
- Automatically executing commands upon device login, right from the Linux shell.
- Getting device interface information fast, right from the Linux shell and saving the information to local storage.
- Working with Python and SNMP and easily performing SNMP GET, SET, SET multiple OIDs, WALK, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK operations on Cisco, Juniper, Arista and HP network devices, using only a few lines of code.
- Parsing locally stored Cisco, Juniper, Arista and HP configuration files and extracting various pieces of information, using a very straightforward Python module.
- Managing device configuration changes using a script that regularly saves the configuration files from your network devices to the local system, compares them with previous file versions, builds a report with all the differences and either stores the report locally or emails the report to the network administrator’s email address(es).
- Performing various small network tests and operations using the Python interpreter.
