First Multi-vendor NETCONF/YANG inter-operability testing: Proven Openness

With the growing complexity of the modern network, automation is becoming more important. NETCONF is one of the widely adopted protocols by networking vendors and customers among all programming interfaces. Alongside NETCONF, YANG provides a powerful, standardized modeling language to complement the NETCONF protocol. In practice, interoperability between service orchestrator and network devices provides flexible mix-and-match solutions based on customer's deployment choice.

Open vRAN Update: NETCONF/YANG Comes to 5G RAN!

One of the key principles of the Open vRAN ecosystem that Cisco and its ecosystem partners announced earlier this year, is to establish open, standard interfaces and management for vRAN. Recently the xRAN Forum has defined the use of IETF’s NETCONF/YANG standard for programmatically configuring and managing its lower layer split RAN architecture.

It’s time to move away from SNMP and CLI and use Model-Driven Telemetry

Traditional features such as SNMP, CLI, and Syslog, used for collecting operational statistics from a network, have several restrictions due to the growth of the objects like IoT devices and cloud based applications. SNMP uses the pull model when retrieving data from a switch. This model cannot scale for today’s high-density platforms, and offers very […]
