The Key Trends Transforming NetOps, The Role of Automation in 5G & The Configuration Tools for NCM
Week of March 17, 2019
Key Trends Shaping DevOps, Transforming NetOps
The advantages of cloud computing – speed, agility, efficiency, and economies of scale – have empowered enterprises to initiate digital transformation. Multi-cloud strategies, augmented by modern agile development practices like DevOps, are reshaping IT to meet business demands for speed and innovation.
ONAP And 5G – The Role Of Automation In 5G And Beyond
The telecom industry has seen a tremendous transformation over the past decade or so, starting with separation of control and user plane, introduction of SDN, virtualization of applications and networks, and is now entering the cloud native phase. Mobile networks has also transformed from 3G to 4G based on IP architecture and is now moving to 5G. Every mobile generation has paved the way for new business models and services. 5G also will bring innovation in business models and new services.
Five Common Types Of Enterprise Networks An NPM Tool Can Monitor
More often than not, enterprises have more than one type of network built in their infrastructure. Usually, the company needs multiple networks operating at once to cover all necessary areas of their business. They need to satisfy the demands of their employees, as well as any other group of people that connect to their network (visitors, for example). To analyze the behavior of all these networks, enterprises use network performance monitoring (NPM) tools. NPMs observe and test network performance and alert users to any abnormal behaviors.
Three Types Of Configuration Tools For Network Change Management
From openly available scripting tools to vendor-supplied services, network change management and configuration tools generally fit into three main categories.
Kicking Neural Network Automation Into High Gear
A new area in artificial intelligence involves using algorithms to automatically design machine-learning systems known as neural networks, which are more accurate and efficient than those developed by human engineers. But this so-called neural architecture search (NAS) technique is computationally expensive.
How Business Intelligence Is Affecting The Development Process To DevOps
A recent study found that nearly 60 percent of the businesses in America outsource their software development. If your company is tasked with building software programs for other businesses, making this process quick and painless is a must. Many software development firms have adopted the DevOps methodology in order to make this process easier.
VMware-VeloCloud Sees The Future Of SD-WAN With 5G, Hybrid Cloud
Enterprises are attracted to software-defined WAN’s compelling benefits of improved application performance and reduced costs. But the future of SD-WAN will merge with the network edge, hybrid cloud and 5G. Glances into these networking developments indicate the need for SD-WAN to support additional capabilities.
Establishing A Business Case For DevOps
Getting the business onboard to begin DevOps, which represents not only a significant change in culture, but in workflow, can be difficult. A panel of experts speaking at Computing’s DevOps Live event agreed that the best way is to start small and understand the objectives.
Cisco, VeloCloud, Aryaka Headline SD-WAN Leaders In New Study
A study published by MarketsandMarkets forecasts SD-WAN to generate $4.1 billion by 2023. The report attributes the anticipated fourfold increase to the proliferation of mobile traffic and cloud services. The rise of a wireless and often remote workforce is creating complexity that SD-WAN can help solve. That’s one of the reasons why AT&T last month announced plans to integrate 5G capabilities into its SD-WAN platform.
DevOps At 10: Adoption Across The Enterprise Would Be The Icing On The Cake
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the coining of the term DevOps by Patrick Debois and Andrew Shafer. Debois has spoken of his surprise that the term ever caught on. That it did is down to a fortunate confluence of the arrival of cloud, the growing popularity of Agile – and Twitter. Debois simply lumped together two abbreviations to create a convenient hashtag with which to push a series of events he had created (DevOpsDays) to promote the use of Agile in systems administration.
AT&T Opens API Marketplace To Complement SDN Portfolio
AT&T has launched a new API marketplace designed to provide businesses with software code to add new services on their sites and applications. It built the marketplace on Ribbon Communications’ Kandy, a cloud-based communications software development platform.
Latest Trends In Automated Threat Intelligence-Driven Network Security
Since the earliest days of the Internet both network threats and network defenses have been evolving. In this Help Net Security podcast recorded at RSA Conference 2019, Todd Weller, Chief Strategy Officer at Bandura Cyber, talks about the latest trends in automated threat intelligence-driven network security.
Exec: How SDN, SD-WAN, Security Fit In VMware’s Strategy
VMware networking and security chief Tom Gillis looks at competing with Cisco and how the company will bolster NSX and more.
Automating Incident Response With Security Orchestration
Cybersecurity incidents occur on a daily basis at most large organizations. This steady stream of incidents poses a challenge for incident response professionals, who must sort through them and identify appropriate courses of action. This becomes even more challenging when the number and complexity of incidents exceeds the technical, financial and staff resources available to incident response teams. In this unfortunate situation, stress levels rise and significant incidents may be overlooked.
