What is Network Automation?

What is network automation? What It Does? 

Technically, Network Automation automates configuring, managing, testing, deploying, and operating of physical and virtual devices within a network. Network-based tasks in our everyday life and repetitive processes controlled and managed automatically, availability of network services is improving day by day. 

Any type of network can use network automation. Hardware- and software-based solutions enable data centers, service providers, and enterprises to implement network automation so, that they can improve efficiency, reduce human error, and lower operating expenses. 

Here is the reason why one should automate network?  

  • Network managers faces a lot of problems due to growing IT Costs for network operations. The growth of data and devices is starting to outpace IT capabilities, making manual approaches nearly impossible.  
  • up to 95 percent of network changes are performed manually, resulting in operational costs 2 to 3 times higher than the cost of the network. Increased IT automation, centrally and remotely managed, is essential for businesses to keep pace in the digital world. 
  • Manual changes lead to configuration errors and inconsistencies in the network. 
  • Expanding network changes at scale can be problematic. 
  • Network downtime and nonremote troubleshooting time are detrimental.

Top Reasons to choose Network Automation: –  

REDUCTION IN NETWORK DOWNTIME: – By removing the chance for human errors, companies can offer and deliver a higher level of services with more consistency across branches and geographies. For example, Juniper Networks’ Service Now is a remote, automated troubleshooting client that enables Juniper to detect quickly and proactively any problems in a customer’s network before they become aware of them. 

LOWER COSTS:-  Because automation reduces the complexities of your underlying infrastructure, dramatically fewer person-hours are required for configuring, provisioning, and managing services and the network. By simplifying operations, consolidating network services, reducing floor space, and cycling underutilized devices off, you need fewer staff to troubleshoot and repair, and reap power savings. 

INCREASED NETWORK RESILIENCY: – By removing the need for the manual interruption in case of an event, companies can offer and deliver a higher level of services with more consistency across branches and geographies. 

REDUCTION IN NUMBER OF ISSUES: – By leveraging low-code and playbook-powered workflows, and with the efficiency of closed-loop, intent-based operations, common network issues are resolved spontaneously. The potential for manual process-related errors like configuration errors, typos, and more is reduced. 

INCREASE STRATEGIC WORKFORCE: – By automating repetitive tasks subject to human error, companies increase productivity, which helps drive business improvements and innovation. As a result, new job opportunities arise for the existing workforce. 

GREATER INSIGHT AND NETWORK CONTROL: – Automation helps make IT operations more responsive to change through analytics. You gain more visibility into the network and understand precisely what is happening in your network with the ability to control and adapt as needed.
