How much time do you spend managing your network today? Use network automation in designing, provisioning, and managing your network, for improved business efficiency.
Network automation is the process of automating the configuring, managing, testing, deploying, and operating of physical and virtual devices within a network. With everyday network tasks and functions automated and repetitive processes controlled and managed automatically, network service availability improves.
Any type of network can use network automation. Hardware- and software-based solutions enable data centers, service providers, and enterprises to implement network automation to improve efficiency, reduce human error, and lower operating expenses.
One of the biggest issues for network managers is the growth of IT costs for network operations. The growth of data and devices is starting to outpace IT capabilities, making manual approaches nearly impossible. Yet up to 95 percent of network changes are performed manually, resulting in operational costs 2 to 3 times higher than the cost of the network. Increased IT automation, centrally and remotely managed, is essential for businesses to keep pace in the digital world.
Up to 95 percent of network changes today are done manually.
Manual changes lead to configuration errors and inconsistencies in the network.
Expanding network changes at scale can be problematic.
Network downtime and nonremote troubleshooting time are detrimental.
