Book Description

In this book, we will begin with a review of the TCP/IP protocol suite and a refresher of the core elements of the Python language. Next, you will start using Python and supported libraries to automate network tasks from the current major network vendors. We will look at automation for traditional network devices based on command-line interface as well as newer devices with API support with hands-on labs. We will then learn the concepts and practical use cases of the Ansible framework to achieve your network goals.

We will then move on to using Python for DevOps, starting with using open source tools to test, secure, and analyze your network. Then, we will focus on network monitoring and visualization. We will learn how to retrieve network information using both a polling mechanism as well as flow-based monitoring and visualizing the data programmatically. Next, we will learn how to use the Python framework to build your own customized network web services.

In the last module, you will use Python for SDN, where you will use a Python-based controller with OpenFlow in a hands-on lab to learn its concepts and applications. We will compare and contrast OpenFlow, OpenStack , OpenDaylight, and NFV. Finally, you will use everything you've learned in the book to construct a migration plan to go from a legacy to scalable SDN-based network.

By the end of the book, you will have all the skills required to perform complex network-related tasks with Python.
