Network Automation

What is network automation?

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.

Why automate your network?

Staying ahead of your customers’ business and personal requirements requires automation tools that can support your entire network and service lifecycle, end to end, from day 0 through day 2. This means that your day 0 design must be aligned with day 2 operations, so that teams understand how the network should function and how to fix issues should they arise.
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.

Reduction in Network Downtime

By removing the chance for human errors, companies can offer and deliver a higher level of services with more consistency across branches and geographies. For example, Juniper Networks’ Service Now is a remote, automated troubleshooting client that enables Juniper to detect quickly and proactively any problems in a customer’s network before they become aware of them.

Lower costs

Because automation reduces the complexities of your underlying infrastructure, dramatically fewer person-hours are required for configuring, provisioning, and managing services and the network. By simplifying operations, consolidating network services, reducing floor space, and cycling underutilized devices off, you need fewer staff to troubleshoot and repair, and reap power savings.

Increased Network Resiliency

By removing the need for manual interruption in case of an event, companies can offer and deliver a higher level of services with more consistency across branches and geographies.

Reduction in number of issues

By leveraging low-code and playbook powered workflows, and with the efficiency of closed-loop, intent based operations, common network issues are resolved spontaneously. The potential for manual process-related errors like configuration errors, typos and more are reduced.

Increase strategic workforce

By automating repetitive tasks subject to human error, companies increase productivity, which helps drive business improvements and innovation. As a result, new job opportunities arise for the existing workforce.

Greater insight and network control

Automation helps make IT operations more responsive to change through analytics. You gain more visibility into the network and understand precisely what is happening in your network with the ability to control and adapt as needed.
