Date / Time: Tuesday, June 13, 2017, 11.00 a.m New York, 4.00 p.m LondonOverview:
The latest attempt to crack the CLI vendor lock-in problem is NETCONF, an XML-based protocol created by the IETF that supports operations like transaction-based provisioning, querying, editing and deleting configuration data on network devices. In conjunction with the modelling language YANG, NETCONF is a key enabler of the new paradigm of SDN/NFV where services can be designed at a high level, independent of the complexities and device dependencies of the underlying infrastructure. NFV needs NETCONF/YANG to deliver on the promise of automation, but NETCONF/YANG can enable automation today without the need for virtualization. Why then, isn't NETCONF/YANG more widely implemented?
This webinar will discuss several issues holding back NETCONF/YANG adoption such as the installed base problem, immaturity of module standardization, skill shortages in CSPs and confusion over the overlap of NETCONF/YANG with TOSCA and REST APIs. We will also look at the challenges that operators face as they migrate to next-generation network management, including the need to manage hybrid physical and virtual network functions and the need for openness from the vendor community.
