Network Automation

What is Network Automation?

Network automation deals with the automation of configuration, management, testing, deployment, and operation of physical and virtual devices within a network. The availability of network services increases as routine network operations and functions are automated and repetitive processes are regulated and handled automatically. Network automation can be used with any kind of network and can be implemented by data centres, service providers, and businesses to increase productivity, decrease human error, and cut operational costs.

Why should we automate our network?

1. To reduce operating costs: Manual procedures are all but impossible when data and device growth begin to overtake IT capabilities. However, up to 95% of network changes are carried out manually, leading to operational expenses that are two to three times higher than the networks purchase price. Network automation will free up your IT team to focus on strategic projects that spur company innovation and improvements, as well as finding new opportunities and boosting productivity, by taking on these monotonous activities off their plate.

2. Reduce the number of errors produced: human error accounts for 80% of network failures. Through network automation, it is possible to reduce them in the process and improve performance with reliability.

3. Deeper network analysis is made possible, allowing for the detection of issues, their resolution, and the prediction of potential future concerns. Utilizing information from numerous sources, network automation enables you to perform a more in-depth investigation of your network.

4. Improve performance - Monitoring tools that are supported by network automation will notify administrators of network failures, high resource utilisation rates, and performance issues. Additionally, it enables you to perform and analyse service-level agreement testing more quickly and accurately.

5. Simplify network management – If done manually, it can be resource-intensive and time-consuming. By enabling more frequent execution of these procedures, network automation reduces the likelihood of network failure and downtime. When the network is automated, configurations will be implemented more easily and reliably throughout the infrastructure. As a result, management can be scaled more easily and is also quicker and simpler.

6. Create a more dynamic network - By automating manual modifications and updates, you may increase business agility, optimise network performance, and hasten the rollout of new apps and services.

7. Lowers Risk: By lowering the number of risks, you will be able to cut down on the number of mistakes your company makes and the number of errors in general. A reduced chance of device failure, performance issues, data breaches, and regulatory compliance violations.
