This is Part I of a Two-Part Series, where we discuss the components and attributes of intent-based networking, including the capabilities for visibility, monitoring, and programmability from the Infrastucture. In Part II, we’ll detail several use cases for intent-based networking.
Networks, like all of IT, are beholden to business policies (intent) as well as to the state of the infrastructure (inventory, traffic, topology) at the time that changes are made. Both of these categories are crucial, and are taken into account with pervasive visibility, relevant analytics and cross-domain, workflow-based automation.
