Python Programming for Network Engineers Course overview

Octa Networks is the most renowned and reliable institute for Python for Network Engineers training in Mumbai, India. Certified, passionate and experienced faculties guide, mentor, and train students and professionals towards achieving the world-renowned certification. Python Foundations for Network Engineers training is available onsite along with online training. Students can opt for a convenient method of training delivery.

This course is designed to be realistic and focuses 30% on Theory and 70% hands on practical learning. The end goal of the course is not to discuss the abstract concepts and terminology of Python. We will instead learn about specific logical constructs that exist in Python, which will enable us to programmatically begin automating networks and network elements.

As network engineers, we have to realize that our industry is changing; evolving. The days of strict command line configuration of networks and networking elements are coming to a close. We need to add programming as a functional skill set to our tool chest, however, we do not need to know everything a Python programming expert needs to know to develop and deploy code like in machine learning applications. The majority of us are just interested in what we need to know to manipulate network environments. To that end this course was developed to assist us by first focusing on how to configure traditional IOS devices with Python. These exercises have been designed to provide us with goal based, practical learning opportunities. However, we will quickly demonstrate how this is useful to learning the programmatic aspects of Python, but not very practical once it is applied at scale.

Octa Networks is based in Mumbai, India and offers various networking courses training including Python for Network Engineers. We are pioneer, reliable and the best institute for Python training in Mumbai, India.

Frequently Asked Question

Python allows you to build scripts to automate complex network configuration. It is the most widely used programming language for software-defined networking, and is a critical skill for new network engineers.

Python provides two levels of access to network services. At a low level, you can access the basic socket support in the underlying operating system, which allows you to implement clients and servers for both connection-oriented and connectionless protocols.

Earlier, a network engineer needn't have much programming skills. All they needed to understand was how to deal with routers and switchers through commands, the way of configuring networking devices, etc. ... The network engineer should have a good knowledge of writing code in this fiercely competitive scenario.

Python is a general purpose programming language, it has libraries that facilitates writing network-based applications. Hence it can be used for "network programming".

Cisco is teaching you Python for the same reason Cisco taught you subnetting, the OSI model, and fundamentals of spanning-tree and routing protocols.

Businesses Still Need Network Engineers. Some believe that automation will take over network engineers' jobs, but the data doesn't back up those claims. ... According to Adato, network engineering will change in the future, but it won't displace the people who work in the industry.
