ConfD Basic Brochure
ConfD makes it faster and lessexpensive to build management interfaces.
ConfD Kick Start Guide
This 35+ page guide provides a practical understanding of the ConfD on-device management framework, ConfD’s architectural principles and how it fits in with the surrounding world.
Whitepaper: Inside RESTCONF
Learn How RESTCONF Works, Where it Should and Shouldn’t Be Used. Download this whitepaper on the recently standardized RESTCONF protocol and find out how it can be more effectively used in determining network equipment development strategies.
Case Study: CGS Tower Networks – Streamlining Product Development
This new case study explores what CGS Tower Networks was faced with and how they leveraged Tail-f’s ConfD solution to deliver the right control management solution to roll out two new products within a few short months.
App Note: ConfD Integation with Legacy Systems Using CDB API
This app note highlights how ConfD can integrate with the parts of the CDB API that can ease the amount of effort needed to integrate new systems with a legacy platform. Capabilities included integrating legacy systems with new management interfaces, such as NETCONF and RESTCONF, in a seamless fashion.
App Note: ConfD Integration with OpenDaylight
As programmability takes center stage, network operators need flexibility to launch new services and maintain their existing ones without affecting hardware. As OpenDaylight (ODL) SDN controller has become one of the most used controllers in the field. ODL is a flexible platform that supports multiple protocols northbound and southbound of the controller. This app note provides a deeper look into how ODL can interact with ConfD based devices via the NETCONF programmable interface.
AppNote: ConfD Active-Active Fully Synchronous HA Clusters
In this technical application note you will learn how ConfD can enable you to scale out in an “Active-Active Fully Synchronous HA Clusters” fashion using only the built-in transaction support for synchronization with very little additional code required.
Whitepaper – NETCONF: The Programmable Interface For SDN and NFV
Learn how a wide range of SDN projects and industry organizations, are now promoting NETCONF as a universal southbound interface for the configuration and management of both VNFs and physical network devices in SDN environments. It’s time for device and VNF vendors to take the next step, by adding NETCONF support.
White Paper: NETCONF-Enabling Network Elements Using ConfD
NETCONF provides an ideal platform for enabling universal element management in hybrid multivendor operator networks. Learn how to manage all of your physical and virtual devices, for all vendors in any environment. With the help of NEPs and ISVs, operators have an advantage with the NETCONF protocol.
ConfD Integration with FreeRADIUS for Authentication
The most common and easiest way to work with ConfD is to use ConfD’s built- in authentication and authorization mechanisms in which all the AAA-related information is being stored in CDB. The next most common way is to use PAM, which allows the same set of users and groups as those of the Linux host itself to have access to ConfD.
ConfD from Tail-f: A Vital Piece of the NFV/SDN Puzzle
Today’s technology developers face significant challenges in the wake of ever increasing demands from customers. End users demand more from telecom providers, and they demand more of the NEPs, creating a series of demands that must be met with each ensuing generation of equipment.
Grow Your Business With ConfD from Tail-f: More flexibility helps NEPs focus on business
The need for new functionality in today’s networking equipment, such as including additional interfaces, is the “forest fire” opportunity startups have been waiting for.
Simplifying the Management of Virtualized Network Elements in Telecom
Tail-f provides an abstraction layer between operations support systems (OSSs) and ISV software-based network elements running on Intel Xeon processors.
