The state of network operations is in the middle of one of the greatest transformations ever seen within the industry. After decades of building and maintaining networks, network operations is still predominantly driven by manual and human operations. Over the past few years, there has been an emergence of network APIs and automation tools, coupled with the growing adoption of DevOps principles and software development into the network domain, providing network operators the foundation to drastically change the way they work.

Whether you’re a novice or an expert; whether you’re looking to increase reliability or speed, or drive down cost, this year’s Network Automation Summit aims to provide greater insight into the trends within the network automation industry, breaking down concepts and tools while also looking at how organizations have been able to transform culturally to fully embrace change and automation. The summit will provide practical next steps on getting started with network automation, compare and contrast many common network automation tools, but also dive deep into the nuts and bolts of development strategies while covering network automation architecture and design.
