The network equipment provider (NEP) market is going through a period of unprecedented change with advanced approaches including SDN and NFV. Change is happening, and fast.
So how do NEPs cope with exponential change? Through automation. This webinar will discuss programmability as the key to automation and ultimately in making devices more programmable. Attendees will learn:
- The challenges with current programmability approaches to automation
- The need for consistent data modelling language to model both configuration data as well as state data of network elements
- How leveraging a standardized approach to programmability like NETCONF and YANG is critical to network automation
- Network automation use cases
