NetBrain IBA Center Solution Brief

SOLUTION BRIEF NetBrain Intent-Based Automation Center (formerly Intent Library) ® Modern network infrastructures have a lot more in common than most people realize, and although the equipment and topology details vary widely, the kinds of operational needs are surprisingly the same. Reduce the Number of Required Reduce the Amount of Service Tickets Resources and Human Errors The second type of common operational need is the The first of these operational needs is related to the ability to be proactive. By understanding each of the dearth of network service and remediation tasks large enterprise applications in use and their individual network enterprises experience. These can number into the requirements, any digital infrastructure can be monitored thousands per month, but if the concept of similarity is to assure those conditions continuously exist. It is quite considered, there may only be a few dozen unique types common for new applications to have an adverse effect of problems, each of which is repeated hundreds or upon previously installed applications, so having the thousands of times. This presents a huge opportunity for ability to verify the production network operating optimization by leveraging automation to address these conditions in the context of the applications that reside relatively few situations. These common types of upon the network is key to strategic operations. By problems can be solved once, and then by capturing proactively looking for issues before they impact the those resolutions, simply applied to subsequent business, problems can be eliminated before outages occurrences, dramatically reducing the number of or service degradations occur. It has been estimated resources required, increasing the consistency of that 50% of all problems can be eliminated using resolutions, and reducing human error. In fact, up to 95% proactive verification. of all service tickets can be accelerated by applying reusable automation in this manner.

SOLUTION BRIEF NetBrain Intent-Based Automation Center (formerly Intent Library) NetBrain Next-Gen Platform NetBrain allows network automation to be applied to every problem, big or small, without complex programming or long expensive development cycles. It allows the expertise of your subject matter experts to be available when the SME themselves are not - a huge factor when it comes to scaling network infrastructures. The result is higher service availability, lower operational costs, shorter ticket duration, and more consistent problem resolutions. NetBrain’s Intent-Based Automation Center provides a continuously expanding library of pre-built expertise-based automation units ready to use right out of the box. These automation units address the most common scenarios seen in the vast majority of enterprises for event-driven response, such as those reported via a network helpdesk service ticket), as well as for proactive design-level compliance, security, and application performance support verifications. Examples of common problem diagnosis situations contained in the Intent-Based Automation Center: NetBrain Intent-Based Automation Center Design-Level Enforcement Event or Ticket Remediation Application Design / Feature / Technology / Security Network • Must-have or Forbidden Routes • Access errors • QoS and Multicast Rule validation • Configuration errors • Firewall rule/ACL validation • BGP or OSPF errors • Failover/Redundancy rules Incident & Feature Agnostic Device • CPU, Memory, Power • Host or Service Unreachable • Link utilization, Latency, Interfaces • Printer/Database Device unavailable • Device reachability • Permission restrictions Key Applications and Paths Application • Voice, Internet, VPN path • Data unavailable • DCI Paths • Voice Choppy • Other key application paths • Response Times Reduced The Intent-Based Automation Center is extensible as well. Through no-code mechanisms built into the Next-Gen platform, your own subject matter experts can create additional situation and site-specific automation routines without any coding and add them to the Intent-Based Automation Center. Any network engineer or operator can use the automation routines to quickly and accurately solve problems when they reoccur. Subject Matter Expertise becomes available when the subject matter experts are not! The NetBrain Intent-Based Automation Center is leveraged throughout the Next-Gen platform. When coupled with an ITSM/ITOM system, NetBrain’s triggered automation will draw from the Intent-Based Automation Center to implement the most useful set of diagnostics in response to specific events.
