Automate Service Provider Networks with Itential

Automation for complex, multi-domain & multi-vendor service provider networks.

Service Provider Networks are Complex, Diverse, & Distributed

Service Providers are facing more pressure than ever before for their Networks to perform without failure. With the explosive growth in cloud-application usage, mobile devices, and extending connectivity and computing to the edge with 5G, Service Providers have to keep up with demands both for more total capacity and higher throughput, which is forcing network operators to change how they manage and deliver network services.

As a result, network operators are looking to automation to help respond to increased demand with faster provisioning, all while maintaining service delivery requirements. With most Service Provider networks spanning multiple domains (cloud, mobile, WAN, RAN, edge, transport, data center, managed services, etc.) and requiring a higher level of investment and management, the right automation solution is needed to support.

Some common challenges our service provider customers face are:

Multi Domain_Blue

Complex multi-domain and multi-vendor environments

Tools_Blue

Unique requirements, vertical tools and point solution sprawl per domain

Automate Network Operations_Blue

‘Integration tax’ with high cost and time related to interoperability between systems & data

Itential Simplifies & Accelerates Automation for Service Providers

PRE-BUILT INTEGRATIONS TO ALL TECHNOLOGIES 

The Itential Automation Platform is API first. Our vendor-agnostic solution acts as an aggregated network API, federating functionality and data from existing northbound and southbound systems, including controllers, orchestrators and network management tools. Our open library of adapters enables organizations to connect to anything or easily auto-generate your own with our Adapter Builder.

RAPID PRE-BUILT AUTOMATIONS FOR TOP USE CASES

Itential provides a number of pre-built automations that customers can leverage to rapidly deploy automation for specific use cases.

  • Cisco iOS, IOS XR & NX Software Upgrade
  • L2/L3 VPN Provisioning
  • VNF Management
  • Device Pre-Check & Post-Check
  • Service Provisioning

We originally chose Itential to help accelerate our network automation efforts because of Itential’s intuitive user-interfaces and out of the box integrations with our DevOps tools. Once we saw the power and speed that we were able to obtain with Itential we started expanding it to work with our other controllers and orchestration deployments as well. The Itential solution allowed us to combine what we were doing with Ansible, Cisco and soon an SD-WAN provider, into a single, cohesive network automation strategy.
