Devices Overview

 

The Devices page in Paragon Automation helps you manage the devices in your network. Paragon Automation supports zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) which you can use to provision the devices while onboarding the device. For information on ZTP, see Zero-Touch Provisioning Overview.

You can use Paragon Automation to manage both Juniper Networks devices and third-party devices (only Cisco IOS XR is supported in Paragon Automation Release 21.1). A managed device in Paragon Automation refers to devices that the EMS component of Paragon Automation can discover in a network, and therefore can configure and monitor the device. An unmanaged device refers to a device that the Element Management System (EMS) component of Paragon Automation does not manage and therefore cannot configure or monitor.

Paragon Automation Release 21.1 supports Juniper Networks devices and Cisco IOS XR devices. Table 1 lists the tasks that you can perform on the Juniper Networks and Cisco IOS-XR devices in this release,
