Instant and Automatic Network Configuration: As Easy as A-B-CI/CD

The network used to rely on manual configurations, siloed and separated groups, and slow provisioning processes. Thanks to technology advancements, companies can now deploy code hundreds of thousands of times per day, quickly and accurately updating their network configurations and security policies. They can even instantly provision private circuits and SD-WAN from the branch/edge to cloud - and everything in between. NetDevOps automated continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) allows the testing and validation to take place. SD-WAN is NetDevOps, agility, speed and automation. Learn how to apply modern agile methods and tools to the deployment of Cisco SD-WAN topologies. Take a step towards NetDevOps by using devops provisioning and configuration management tools and Cisco CML to build test environments, create infrastructure-as-code, and automate Day 0, Day 1 and Day 2 configurations.
