Do you know which part of your network is likely to fail next? And how to prevent it? Your Cisco IOS® Network provides a wealth of advanced device manageability instrumentation (DMI) and Embedded Automation Systems (EASy) to design and implement your own Network Automations. Learn how Network Automation allows you to automate manual tasks, better operate existing network services and even enable new and innovative networking solutions. This session uncovers embedded Network Automation capabilities you can use to interact with your network elements for the purpose of implementing network testing, verification and service assurance in a more effective, efficient and robust way. Network Automation fundamentals as well as the choice and use of appropriate practices are illustrated through a combination of presentation and best practice examples.
