Automation is essential to enable very large-scale and agile networks that can be dynamically reconfigured to meet the ever-changing workload demands stemming from the IoT, autonomous vehicles, and enhanced edge applications providing immersive experiences. Unfortunately, today’s networks often rely on manual programming, which is based on primitive instructions that shed little light on the design, the network architect’s intent in choosing a particular design, and key knowledge needed for network automation. In contrast, the new model of intent-driven networking requires the network architect to describe what is needed, with network management software translating those requirements into a design. As changes are needed, orchestration platforms, possibly using AI & ML technology, can automatically use the originally declared requirements to derive a new design or to validate changes to an existing design. Join this webinar to learn about the techniques and architectures behind intent-driven networks as well as use cases for their deployment.
