Why Zero Touch Provisioning Is Your Best Friend

 

In a world where people want to do little as possible to get their desired outcome, the word “automation” speaks volumes. Your time is valuable, and you don’t want to spend any more of it than you have to on any given task. That’s why Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) is your best friend.

With ZTP, you can activate switches, routers, and all sorts of networking equipment from a centralized location—with little to no human interaction. Rather than configuring one device at a time—a time-consuming and labor-intensive exercise—you can use this automation tool to perform OS software updates and patches in seconds.

 

ZTP is akin to setting up a new cell phone.  When purchasing a new phone in the past, you would have to visit your carrier’s nearest store and have a service representative set up your device.  Now, you simply insert a sim card to set up your new phone over the cellular network.  ZTP operates in much the same way, freeing up your valuable time and reducing the potential for human error.  If that doesn’t make ZTP your best friend, I don’t know what does.

 

I would like to invite you to explore different use cases that Juniper network automation has to offer. Watch our latest webinar and learn how EATEL, a provider of telecommunication services, used Junos OS programmability and automation to exponentially grow managed services.
