Python course for Network Engineers

Python for network engineer

Python course for network engineers is for professionals willing to earn network automation and programming capability to work with complex network configurations. On the other hand, Python allows you to write scripts to automate enterprise complex network configuration. Therefore, command over Python is critical for your success as a network engineer.

Python is one of the most widely used programming languages for SDN (software-defined networking). Therefore, UniNets is here with this course. It will teach you the very basics of programming needed for networking with Python language. In other words, you will learn the fundamentals of the language including how to install Python, objects, variables, data types, and numbers.

Similarly, you will learn operators, floats, strings in Python, comparisons, lists, tuples, dictionaries, commenting codes, modules, Netmiko, and many more. 

Adding to this, the program will demonstrate Python automation and programming for network engineers. As a result, they can learn coding by developing a complete command-line application and maintaining tasks through python scripting. Certainly, it is one of the best networking courses which is used to link components together which are already in use. You might have come across many other programming languages. But, in today’s scenario, Python Automation demand has reached another level of it.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn to install Python
  2. Network automation in detail
  3. Objects, Variables and Data Types in Python
  4. What is numbers, Strings, Comparisons tools, Lists, Tuples
  5. Describe code structures and loops
  6. Understand While loop, advance loop concepts
  7. Describe dictionaries & ranges, functions
  8. Explain Telnet & SSH Scripts
  9. Describe scripts in Python with lab scenarios
  10. Overview of Netmiko with lab scenarios
  11. How to configure NTP server and related configuration
  12. Error handling
  13. Describe NAPALM and how to use NAPALM for device configuration audit and changes
    1. Know how to create scripts to retrieve BGP information from the router
  14. Explain iteration
  15. Lab practices using load balancers

Why Python for network engineers?

Python is easy to understand and readable for network automation. This is the dominating and high-level language. As a result, you do not need to write a lot of codes. In short, fast and easy debugging, interpreted, powerful, object-oriented, extensible, and many other reasons make this language to learn.

In addition, Python helps in network automation where programmed scripts automatically configure, manage, provision, and test network devices. Python automation for engineers helps to reduce the complexity of infrastructures, enables speed, ensures reliability and compliance.

With the high demand for automation and programming skills and knowledge in the industry, Python for network engineers is the best course for network engineers.

Moreover, python uses various tools/ modules to handle network devices from various vendors such as Cisco (IOS, IOS XE, IOS XR), Arista, Juniper, HP, Avaya. This can execute several CLI commands simultaneously on different network devices.

  • Understand automating configuration tasks or even troubleshooting network issues
  • Learn mass configurational changes on devices like Cisco IOS
  • Explore interacting with API of modern platforms (VMware, Cisco APIC, Load Balancer, Arista, etc)
  • Learn how to operate using power automation libraries such as NAPALM, Netmiko, Exscript

In conclusion, network engineers who are interested to learn Python will get hands-on experience. In other words, they will get a deep understanding of Python automation with scripting and Python network programming.  This is the Python certification course where students learn how to use automation and programming in networking.

I was searching training institute for network security in Delhi NCR, finally I found UniNets for my professional courses training. I have done ASA, Checkpoint, Palo alto, Load balancer training from this institute. The best part about UniNets is that they have industry best trainers and best lab facilities with virtual racks and 24*7 access facilities. I strongly recommending this institute for networking courses.
YatirajYatirajCisco CCNP Security
I have join UniNets for CCNP security. I don't know anything before joining this institute but with the help of trainers and supporting staff I am now able to configure, troubleshoot networking devices. Trainers provided me the basic idea about network security which helps to build my security foundation. They provides 24*7 Lab facility, flexible timings, workbooks, online virtual racks, professional trainers, etc, So UniNets is the best networking institute in India.

KawshikKawshikPlacement Oriented Program
I am M.Tech graduate and my interest in networking brought me here. Once I joined freshers programmy networking concepts got cleared and received multiple offers. I am currently pursuing CCIE from here.
AnupamAnupamCCIE R&S, Nexus, Load Balancer
"I was struggling to get a good job before joining UniNets. I enrolled here for CCIE R&S training. My concepts were solidify after few months. Later on I obtained multiple offers from top companies. I really thanks to UniNets for building my career to the highest level. I also enrolled here for other courses such as Nexus and Load Balancer"
Ubaid ShahidUbaid ShahidCCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Wireless
Being a fresher I was struggling to get a job, After getting enrolled for UniNets placement oriented program I got confidence and finally got placed in NetData Vault. I would definitely recommend UniNets for people like me. I will come back here for advance courses.
Piyush SinghPiyush SinghCCIE R&S, BGP+MPLS, Nexus, Load Balancer
"I have been to many other Institute for clearing my routing and switching concepts but unfortunately they were all so bad until I joined UniNets where I was trained by a CCIE R&S certified trainer himself. He helped me not only clearing my concepts but also helped me in preparing technical round of interviews. Thanks to UniNets for giving me such an expert level training"
