Mirapath recently hosted a Lunch and Learn event focusing on practical steps to increase automation in network management, ranging from zero-touch provisioning to orchestration tools.

We had the pleasure of having Marcio Saito, CTO of Opengear, as our guest speaker. Marcio has an extensive industry experience and held numerous leadership roles in the data center space. As CTO of Opengear, Marcio is responsible for the company’s product and technology strategy as well as leading the development of next-generation Opengear products.

Here are some of the key topics from Marcio’s presentation.

Out-of-Band Value Proposition Stack:

  • Automation – automate mass provisioning
  • Provisioning – allow remote mass equipment configuration
  • Resilience – redundant network
  • Remediation – to troubleshoot

The Pursuit of Automation:

  • Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP)
  • Orchestration Tools
  • DevOps: Infrastructure as Code

Zero-Touch Provisioning:

  • Config files specifically targeted at each device
  • Devices boot using DHCP, receive an IP address and a pointer to their configuration file
  • Configuration file can be a template or script, allowing full device configuration

Thank you to Marcio Saito, Opengear, and everyone that attended!
