0:00 juniper network's network automation

0:03 webinar take one

0:07 big bang transformations as we all know

0:09 don't work and when they do work they

0:11 take too long it used to be that on

0:13 boarding a customer might take several

0:15 weeks and i think in today's world is

0:18 not acceptable in longer you see 60

0:20 percentage of the network problems are

0:22 not discovered by net ops because they

0:24 do not have the right tools to

0:27 understand the service quality end to

0:29 end

0:29 [Music]

0:32 it comes down to a need to automate

0:34 because the level of changes

0:36 and the timing of these changes are

0:38 really beyond the practicality of human

0:40 beings as networks evolve automation

0:43 will be the only way to keep pace and

0:46 safeguard against the errors

0:51 the reality is we can't do big bang and

0:53 rebuild everything in our operational

0:55 environment at once so we need to ask

0:58 where are we going to concentrate our

0:59 efforts first

1:00 [Music]

1:01 where we believe the most intelligent

1:03 place to begin thinking about how do you

1:06 implement

1:07 automation and how do you implement

1:10 assurance as part of that automation is

1:12 right within

1:13 the

1:14 ip environment itself

1:18 so with active assurance you're able to

1:20 inject synthetic layer 2 to layer 7

1:23 traffic to load test

1:25 your network

1:26 and to ensure that you meet the desired

1:29 slas in a way that is simulated like

1:32 real end customers that are using your

1:34 services without having active assurance

1:37 in the operator's tool set we think

1:39 service placement and visibility is

1:41 impossible to infer i think some of the

1:43 automated testing methods are not only

1:45 beneficial they are going to be

1:48 absolutely essential
