The increasing usage of data cloud services, IoT and new network services is accelerating the usage of automation and orchestration at all levels. Some NRENs started the journey to automation long time ago. Is your NREN prepared for it?
Network engineers are usually very busy operating the network, and starting the whole process to efficiently automate and orchestrate tasks can take so long that the benefits may seem too far away. But automation is coming anyway, and you need to be prepared. It's a mindset change!
There are several ways in which the GÉANT project can help you in this journey. In this Infoshare, we will give an overview of how and will specifically present:
1) The study around architectures, taking the TMF Open Digital Architecture (ODA) principles and "big blocks" as a blueprint that can be used to map any organisations' architecture, while keeping the flexibility to choose how to implement processes into each domain.
2) The Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation Training, prepared by members of the GÉANT community for the community, with different itineraries, from the management to the network engineer, starting with introductory and practical capsules.
This Infoshare was held on December 16th, 2020 and was be recorded. You can find the recording in the GÉANT channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7ntyKS2UJw
