Why software automation support is needed in today’s networks

Anyone working in network admin today knows that the network has long since blown passed the days of being managed as a collection of devices.  The days of network admins using the CLI to configure devices, or “automating” some tasks with TCL scripts may have worked in the 1990’s or early 2000’s, but it’s simply not enough to keep up with the scale and complexity of today’s networks.  That said, the business mission for the network hasn’t changed.  If anything, in today’s world of digital transformation, that mission has become even more critical – highly reliable services, rapid remediation of issues, efficient services upgrade process, security.

Administrators must have the ability to manage all those network devices and their services thru software.  As a result, the use of traditional CLI copy-paste configurations process is going away, and being replaced by a vast usage of API’s to automate large scale networks.

This is what Cisco’s DNA Intent Based Networking is all about.

Network administrators can now build simple, yet very powerful software to manage their networks, to automatically detect and alert them to any abnormal behavior, get real time (or close to real time) network status, easily configure and maintain the deployed network devices, etc.

Programmable Networks and the New World of Intent Based Networking

This new world of the intent based, programmable network is not possible unless you have network devices that are programmable. Everything should start with a proper infrastructure management on the device itself.  That’s where Cisco’s IOS-XE comes in – a newly designed, highly programmable operating system for Cisco switches and routers in the enterprise network, which aids the network administrators to manage today’s networks.
