The Role of Intent-Based Assurance in Zero-touch Service Operations
Watch Webex On-Demand
5G and fiber build-out, work-from-home and work-from-anywhere initiatives, LEO satellite launches and sub-sea cable lays — connectivity has become ubiquitous but significantly more complex. Communication service provider (CSP) and enterprise network operators alike struggle to keep t.heir networks running and operational costs low, all while meeting service-level objectives (SLOs) and service-level agreements (SLAs).
Intent-based frameworks promise a path towards managing increasing network complexity while enabling automation and leveraging AI/ML. In recent years, technology has matured sufficiently that early intent-based networking solutions are showing value in production deployments.
In this session, we provide a primer on intent-based networking and assurance, and the immediate value they bring to enterprise and CSP networks and the services they support. Key topics covered include:
-Intent-Based Networking and Automation: State of the Industry and Market
- Why intent is the only feasible path forward for network operators
- How intent-based assurance enhances zero-touch service operations
- Demonstrable outcomes of applying intent-based assurance to CSPs overall service assurance strategy and approach
- Pragmatic advice on how to get started on the journey to intent-based networking and assurance
