Netconf: Not Your Fathers Network Management
The complexity and size of networks are increasing dramatically. This is placing new demands on network operators to deploy networks in an affordable and effective manner. NETCONF is a new IETF standard that is redefining the way in which network devices are configured using a highly-scalable, XML-based, machine-to-machine protocol. This webinar will provide a technological update on NETCONF. We will compare the benefits and applications of NETCONF to SNMP, SOAP, and other approaches to configuration management. NETCONF is rapidly evolving and you will learn about its new directions. The webinar offers information regarding The NETCONF protocol which is a modern building block for device management automation, offering a unified approach to network configuration, rather than a device-specific methodology. To equipment vendors, NETCONF is a way to standardize the management interface of network elements. To service providers, NETCONF is a way to optimize the administrative workflow, by moving management intelligence out of the device under management, and consolidating this management into higher-level applications.
