Traditional approaches to network management can't handle soaring network complexity. In the future, the best way to stay in control of your networks will be to program and automate them. Programming and Automating Cisco Networks introduces powerful new Cisco technologies for doing just that. CCIEs Ryan Tischer and Jason Gooley begin by showing how network automation and programmability can bridge gaps in network management arising from modern operational models. Next, they introduce software development tools, use cases, and examples for programming the Nexus 9000 and other Cisco data center network platforms. You'll find detailed coverage of programmability for Cisco campus and WAN products, including the use of NetConf/Yang, ConfD, and Cisco SDN controller for managing complex WAN environments. Tischer and Gooley then introduce Cisco's self-service catalog, Prime Services, and techniques for orchestrating multiple automation solutions to deliver applications, using Cisco Process Orchestrator. They conclude with links and references for extending your network automation skills via online communities and open source projects.

The entire networking industry is being pressured to automate to scale and move faster. In modern networks, you just can't manage everything by hand anymore. You need to automate relentlessly, and the most practical way to do so is with YANG and NETCONF. But existing documentation on these technologies has been poor, jargon-filled, or non-existent, so most implementers have been forced to learn by trial and error. Now, Network Programmability with YANG gives them comprehensive and reliable guidance for unlocking the power of network automation using model-driven APIs and protocols. Written by three leaders of the YANG development effort, this plain-spoken book guides networking professionals in successfully applying software practices based on YANG data models. The authors focus on the network operations layer, emphasizing model-driven APIs and underlying transports. Using their information and insights, network professionals can transform the way they manage large networks.
