Whether you're a novice or an expert; whether you're looking to increase reliability or speed, or drive down cost, this year's Network Automation Summit will provide greater insight into the trends within the network automation industry, breaking down concepts and tools while also looking at how organizations have been able to transform culturally to fully embrace change and automation. The summit will provide practical next steps on getting started with network automation, compare and contrast many common network automation tools, but also dive deep into the nuts and bolts of development strategies while covering network automation architecture and design.

The Summit provides a rich mix of curriculum to give network automation newbies a fast start and put veterans on the cutting edge of the latest developments.

The "Quick Start" track will showcase the tools, technologies and processes you need to implement network automation. We'll cover all the key network automation building blocks, including Ansible, Netmiko, NAPALM, Netbox, CI/CD, Batfish, as well as next-gen monitoring with time-series databases and Grafana. This is a unique opportunity to learn from the leaders in network automation and go hands-on with many of the leading technologies.

In the "Solutions" track, practitioners will reveal the details of the robust solutions they've put in place to enhance network operations. You'll hear how Nornir was used to solve operational challenges and how the ELK stack can be used for network data analysis. We'll take a deep dive into Ansible collections and learn how Systemd can be used within your network DevOps strategy. We'll explore how to manage network data and Source of Truth with NetBox, Dolt, and Graph Databases.

Additionally, all attendees will enjoy general sessions covering organizational change, open source vs. commercial tools, and the role of data within network automation. And after two days of hard work, we'll finish with the Network Automation Game Show!

Don't rely on the home version: Join us at Interop for the Network Automation event of the year.
