How Tier 1 Operators are Breaking Down Dev and Ops Silos


DevOps has transformed the way software and cloud services businesses work with major benefits such as improved agility, faster time to market and lower costs. Network Operators want to achieve similar benefits but are struggling to adopt a variant of DevOps for networks called NetDevOps while breaking down Dev and Ops Silos. Why? Most network operators have completely different tooling, systems and automation approaches in their development labs and operational networks. And traditionally, network equipment was designed to be operated by humans via CLIs, not by automation scripts. Regardless, these approaches have grown over years and have become firmly entrenched.

In this webinar, AvidThink and Spirent explain how Tier 1 network operators are using automation to break down the silos between networking Dev and Ops teams. 

AvidThink Analyst Roy Chua will highlight key DevOps trends and discuss the challenges of deploying NetDevOps. Spirent validation and assurance experts Jay Stewart and Clark Whitty will share Spirent’s cutting-edge work with tier-1 network operators and network equipment providers, describing how network validation and assurance workflows can be automated so Dev and Ops teams can work together more effectively.
