Network Automation benefits
Reduced time to deploy and configure new devices:
Network automation can be used to automate many of the tasks involved in deploying and configuring new and existing devices,
such as assigning IP addresses, setting up VLANs, and configuring routing protocols.
This can save a significant amount of time and effort, especially for large networks in the midst of changes or migrations.
Improved consistency and accuracy:
Network automation will help to ensure that devices are configured consistently and accurately, get the same result, every time.
This will help to reduce the number of errors and inconsistencies in the network.
Network automation can make it easier to make large and complex changes to the network, all in one go, with the ability to roll back quickly.
Reduced operational costs:
Network automation can help to reduce operational costs by automating many of the tasks that are currently performed manually.
This can free up network engineers to focus on more strategic tasks.
