Huge growth in demand for network capacity and scale is driving service providers to re-think their network architecture. They are looking at how hyperscalers solved similar challenges in the cloud with a disaggregated architecture based on low-cost white boxes and resource virtualization, with network disaggregation gaining momentum among the large service providers. Operators that are disaggregating their network are excited about the service and operational opportunities that it opens up, but concerned about the operational complexities this creates, requiring them to pull together all the infrastructure elements – hardware and software – on their own. This is something that was entirely done for them through a single-vendor solution. This is where orchestration and management come into play.

Join this webinar and learn about the management and orchestration of a disaggregated network architecture, bringing it all together – simply.

  • From ODM to network – how to secure and automate the white boxes provisioning process
  • ZTP (Zero Touch Provisioning) – seamlessly scale-out and scale-up in the network
  • What is a virtual chassis and what does it mean for a single entity?

Disaggregation is now here. Learn how.
