Tim Szigeti, Principal Technical Marketing Engineer at Cisco, looks at how their Digital Network Architecture (DNA) provides an abstraction for policy and enables closed-loop automation via analytics. Network administrators build their network, hope for the best, and react to alarms. This reactive approach leads to perpetual fire-drills with operation teams running down issues to placate disgruntled users. The presentation looks at the top-down approach Cisco is taking with network assurance and the bottoms-up “gates-to-GUI” architecture that is being built to deliver it.
