Why the time to move to NETCONF/YANG is now

 

time to move netconf

With backing from major NFV/SDN projects and industry organizations, NETCONF, the client/server protocol designed to configure network devices more clearly and effectively, will soon become ubiquitous. Operators who migrate to NETCONF can both future-proof their operations for NFV and can also reap some of short-term benefits of automation, today.

Our customers tell us that NETCONF is fast becoming the preferred way to provision virtualized networking devices. Tail-f has been the main advocate of this protocol, with a pitch that goes roughly as follows: “NETCONF provides the toolset to configure an end-to-end service with a single network-wide transaction. OSS programmers spend less time in handling error cases –as the role of transactions is precisely to ensure success and rollback in case of errors. You do not need to pay high-salary CLI experts to handle such rollbacks manually, when the OSS has failed to do it in a proper way. And you can now automate service creation at an unprecedented level.”
