Hi Nicklas,


May I know, what is the different between NSO 100 and NSO 201?

I noticed some pdf, earlier cisco provided NSO 100 training and now it is not available.


Thank you

Cisco Employee


Sorry for the delay but I had to do some research and go back to the training team to answer your question. Hope this help


Here is what I got:

NSO201 was created as a replacement for NSO100 which was EoLed in May 2018. The NSO100 course datasheet has been removed. A detailed summary of the changes is provided below.


Main changes between NSO100 (now EoL) and NSO201:
