Automation has been a buzzword in our industry for well over a decade as service providers and vendors have developed technology to simplify networks, including network programmability, SDN, NFV, APIs, and other tools. While progress is certainly being made, these solutions are still prescriptive in nature, falling short of the true intent of network automation. Making the pivot to a fully automated network will require a pivot from a prescriptive to a more autonomous, intent-based network management approach. The business benefit of doing so, is the simplification of the network management lifecycle, from design, through implementation, and ongoing operations. More importantly, with the right partner and solutions, you can simplify your adoption by taking an incremental approach, adopting and deployment solutions where they provide immediate value first and then moving along to the next stage.
In this webinar, we will demystify automation by exploring five steps service providers should take to implement automation into their network environment and move toward the realization of a network that is driven by desired engineering outcomes. As we step through the journey, we will discuss solutions available in the market today, that will help you progress from each step to the next.
