There is no doubt that network automation is having a major impact on how networks are managed and operated on a daily basis. While there are growing trends of the use of open source for network automation, there is still growth from manufacturers offering commercial software (some of which is built on open source). This session explores the use of open source and commercial tooling, focusing on control and extensibility, total cost of ownership, and general trends that are seen when both are used together.
