Coding Essentials II – NetDevOps Series, Part 4
Now that we understand data models and data transfer formats, we need to consider what protocol to use in order to exchange that information. NETCONF and RESTCONF.
Automating Your Network Operations, Part 3 – Data-Driven Ansible
The combination of YANG and NETCONF give us structure and determinism to enable network programmability, and give us several operational advantages over CLI.

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 […]
New DevNet Learning Module, “Home Lab: Setting up Your Desktop OS for Network Programmability”
Hey, you networkers out there. (Yes, it’s a little weird – I’m talking to networkers in a blog post at a site where a lot of Developers hang out.) Remember the short struggle when you first learned about Cisco devices? What cable to use to connect to the console? What drivers to add to make […]
Fast Tracking Network Automation
Traditional telco operations support systems (OSS) have tended to focus on point solutions that provide specific functions in their own attempt to automate networks. However, this approach has often failed to live up to its promise.
How a Traditional Network Engineer Got Started with Network Programmability
When I was asked to write my experiences preparing to present in the DevNet Zone at Cisco Live 2017, the first thought that came to mind was,...
