Bringing DevOps to Network Engineering with Ansible, Vagrant and CICD

TechWiseTV Workshop

(Original Webinar February 14, 2018)

In this NetDevOps workshop, we will dive into the tools and technology behind the Network Configuration Pipeline CI/CD with a live demonstration. You will see how the developer environment tool Vagrant can be used with networking devices to provide local development instances of a router or switch. We’ll explore “Network as Code” using Ansible to define and ensure intent.

We will leverage the Cisco Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) to provide an on-demand testing network for proving out configurations before they go to production. And lastly, we will show you how to use the open source build server, Drone.io, to automate the network configuration.

Join the TechWiseTV team and DevNet experts to see how these developer tools come together and leave with everything you need to get started yourself.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The tools and technology behind the Network Configuration Pipeline CI/CD demo
  • The developer environment tool Vagrant
  • Network as code
  • Testing networks using the Cisco Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL)
  • Automating network configuration
