Autonomous Network Lifecycle Operations
for Service Provider Scale-out NFV

Telco service providers are undertaking two critical architecture transformations: CORD (Central Office Re- architected as a Data Center) and Cloud Edge. In both cases, Telcos need to scale-out virtualized network functions (NFV) using underlay networks (L3 leaf-spine). They also require NFV workload mobility and inter- rack communications of disaggregated workloads (e.g. NAT, Firewalls, WAN Acceleration, etc.) using overlay networks (L2 VXLAN).

However, Telcos are being held back on the complex, time-consuming and manual process of designing, implementing and operating (e.g. visibility and correlation) underlays and overlays. Risks of vendor lock-in, outages, and high TCO are also significant concerns. Service providers must address immediate and long-term challenges:

Read this in-depth use case to learn how the Apstra Operating System (AOS®) helps solve these challenges by enabling vendor-agnostic, intent-based and closed-loop operations for underlays and overlays — integrated as a single autonomous system — without DIY coding.
