Itential & IP Fabric Partner to Accelerate Enterprise Network Automation & Assurance
Integrating industry-leading network automation and assurance technologies give enterprises a robust solution to rapidly build automations and execute with confidence
ATLANTA, June 13, 2022 – Itential, the leader in network and cloud automation software, and IP Fabric, the leader in network assurance solutions for enterprises, today announce the integration of their two platforms, giving enterprises the ability to quickly build and deploy network automations and execute them with confidence that the resulting state of the network matches its intent through network verification, validation, and assurance. Itential and IP Fabric are currently showcasing their respective solutions and the new integration throughout Cisco Live 2022 at Itential’s booth #933 and IP Fabric’s booth #1033.
Itential’s low-code automation platform facilitates the rapid design and deployment of automation workflows. IP Fabric’s Assurance Platform provides a network source of truth and validates and verifies that changes comply with network policies. Together, the two platforms give enterprises the ability to accelerate and scale their network automation initiatives with confidence.
“Network operations is evolving from tools to platforms with integration and automation at its core,” said Chris Wade, CTO at Itential. “As network teams focus on self-serve and automated operations, it becomes critical to build confidence through testing and real-time validation. Combining the Itential Automation Platform with IP Fabric’s Discovery and Assurance Platform enables enterprises to automate their networks with peace of mind. Itential is focused on building an ecosystem of like-minded vendors, like IP Fabric, who are focused on removing any concern for how systems will work together and thus accelerating the automation journey for our customers.”
“Intent-based network automation is crucial to managing rapidly changing large-scale enterprise networks, which in turn becomes the engine for necessary digital transformation,” said Pavel Bykov, CEO at IP Fabric. “Partnering with a vendor like Itential that delivers fulfillment of the network intent complements our ability to continuously validate network operations, allowing us to deliver comprehensive solutions to enterprises and significantly accelerate their progress on the road to a self-driving network.”
The Itential Automation Platform is the only automation solution built to support and manage hybrid cloud infrastructure, making it easy for enterprises to maintain network compliance, reduce manual operations, and simplify network management. Its API-first capabilities allow for seamless integration to any IT system and network technology, driving complete end-to-end network automation and orchestration.
IP Fabric’s Assurance Platform helps enterprises empower their network and security teams to rapidly discover, model, verify, and visualize large-scale networks, providing actionable insight into the state of the network and evidence that it’s delivering required business services.
By integrating these two platforms together, network teams can create automated change in the network that can be:
- Validated by measuring the end-to-end behavior of the resulting network, comparing it with its previous state and the desired outcome.
- Triggered when the network has breached some threshold of measured drift from desired behavior.
This joint integration enables enterprises to accelerate network automation with confidence, setting them up for a smooth road to an eventual self-driving network.
