Simplifying Transport Network Operations With Declarative, Vendor-Neutral Configuration Management

Tuesday, 5 March, 11:00-12:30
Theater III, Hall G
Session organized by OpenConfig

Session Description

Operating large, multi-vendor transport networks using traditional management interfaces (TL1, CLI, SNMP, etc.) presents a number of challenges to automation including dealing with vendor-specific conventions, serialized, imperative configuration, and the lack of well-defined machine-to-machine APIs. A model-driven, declarative management approach based on the OpenConfig ecosystem provides a simplified, vendor-neutral framework for configuring network devices, enabling new levels of automation and scalability. This panel will include the perspective of both users and technology providers on the benefits and best practices for OpenConfig-based configuration management.
