Overview

This guide demonstrates the use of Model-Driven (MDT) Telemetry in the context of a virtualized Broadband-Network Gateway (vBNG). This lab aims to provide Systems Engineers with appropriate skills for creating environments that harness the streaming of telemetry data. It will enable them to understand and use MDT data of XR devices, a toolset with collection, storage, visualization and basic analytics, a data processing engine, and Cisco Network Service Orchestrator® (NSO). As such, the lab contains a brief overview of each component and a set of scenarios that help the engineer in defining the building blocks of a closed-loop telemetry environment.

Scenarios

  • Scenario 1: Build a Minimal BNG Setup
  • Scenario 2: Configure Telemetry Support for XRv 9000
  • Scenario 3: Automate IPv4 Address Pool Management
