Automation vs. Orchestration

Time 12/11/19 01:40PM-02:00PM

Room Grand Ballroom D/E (5th)

Session Abstract

Why automation is good, but orchestration is better!

In recent years, there has been a continued effort and push towards automating networks. This presents many challenges for organizations; operationally and technically. At SURF we have wholeheartedly chosen to walk the path of orchestration. Our ambition is to be able to fully automation the administration and provisioning of our network service portfolio to enable our customers to on-demand, order, monitor and control their services. This will clear the path to a fully automated and more complex portfolio that can combine services from many different technology domains into single products.
In this session we will share our experiences and show that on the path towards the orchestration of networks. Automation is just one of the building blocks that is needed towards self-driving autonomous networks.
