NETCONF and YANG Tutorial
Intro to NETCONF
YANG Overview and Examples
“The Business Case for NETCONF and YANG” — MWC 2015 Town Hall Event
Tail-f Systems held the second annual MWC 2015 Town Hall event highlighting “The Business Case for NETCONF and YANG.” Executives from top-tier service providers joined Cisco and Tail-f in a discussion on the importance of programmable network service standardization.
Heavy Reading Whitepaper: Deploying Virtual Network Functions: The Complementary Roles of TOSCA and NETCONF/YANG
Tail-f Systems and Heavy Reading have released a new white paper that describes the principles behind cloud application deployment templates and explains why TOSCA is becoming a leading candidate deployment template specification. Additionally, it explores why TOSCA is not sufficient in the virtualized network and analyzes how specification such as TOSCA and runtime interfaces such as NETCONF/YANG will coexist.
Heavy Reading Whitepaper: Creating the Programmable Network – The Business Case for NETCONF / YANG in Network Devices
Tail-f Systems and Heavy Reading have released a white paper that explores communication service providers’ desire for a “programmable” network that can be reconfigured quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Senior Analyst Caroline Chappell discusses the adoption of NETCONF and YANG and their powerful contribution to network opex reduction and speed of service turn-up.
“The Case of NETCONF and YANG” – MWC 2014 Panel Event
At this year’s Mobile World Congress Tail-f hosted a panel event on “The Case of NETCONF and YANG.” The panel consisted of some interesting industry leaders including Deutsche Telekom (Axel Clauberg), Cisco (Phil Harris), Ericsson (Gabriela Styf Sjöman), Juniper (Geoff Mattson) and of course Tail-f (Carl Moberg).
Light Reading Radio Show – Service Orchestration: The Case for NETCONF and Yang
Geoffrey Mattson, VP of Engineering and Product Management with Juniper Networks and Carl Moberg, VP of Technology for Tail-f, Discuss – Service Orchestration: The Case for NETCONF and YANG.
What is NETCONF?
NETCONF is a protocol defined by the IETF to install, manipulate, and delete the configuration of network devices.
What is YANG?
YANG is a data modeling language used to model configuration and state data manipulated by the NETCONF protocol.
This is a short guide on YANG – the NETCONF data modeling language that describes how data is represented and accessed. The guide includes tutorials and use case examples.
Ongoing ETSI POC with Tail-f NCS/Cisco NSO Orchestration Assurance
Stefan Vallin and experts from Netrounds present the ongoing ETSI POC with Tail-f NCS/Cisco NSO orchestration virtual functions. The orchestration scenario includes activating the services as well as assurance. All covered by unifying YANG data-models.
“Network Programmability requirements for NFV” – NFV World
Carl Moberg, VP of Technology for Tail-f, discusses the challenge in the transition from current generation networks toward virtualized network functions, and what to do about it. View his presentation from NFV World Congress 2015, San Jose.
EANTC Interoperability Test of Tail-f
This onsite test was done at SDN World Congress 2015, highlighting the interoperability of various network equipment providers with NETCONF and YANG.
The Role of APIs in the Virtualised Network
Stefan Wallin, Director of Product Strategy, discusses the role of APIs in the virtualized network.
Heavy Reading Whitepaper: Service Orchestration Requirements for a New Era of Networking
Cisco and Heavy Reading have released the latest whitepaper to discuss the three “extreme” business requirements for flexibility, automation and reliability emerging in a new era of hyperfast business that a service orchestration system must fulfill.
SDN is beautiful, but try setting it to work in a big, dirty, living network
Carl Moberg, VP of technology at Tail-F says there’s been a power re-balance between vendors and carriers, rather than a binary change and the technology change difficult as well. “It’s one thing to talk about technological excellence and how good this looks on paper,” he says. “But it’s an entirely different game if you want to put it on a product and bring it into the market. I don’t think it’s a secret in the industry that OpenFlow is amazing in its beauty and its terseness, but putting that into a big, dirty, living network is something entirely different.
Customer Case Study – Service Chaining with SDN and OpenFlow Controllers
Jan Lindblad, Principal Solutions Architect with Tail-f Systems shares a customer case study on delivering the key software components of Software-Defined Network for a customer’s provisioning and control of dynamic service chains.
Six Design Principles for Multi-Vendor SDN
Tail-f’s CTO, Håkan Millroth, discusses the 6 design principles needed for multi-vendor Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Håkan addresses key issues involving data structure, data modeling, mapping services to network state changes, transaction management, error recovery, and the role of OpenFlow.
Heavy Reading: Driving Network Agility Through a Service Orchestration Approach
There is widespread market consensus that it takes too long both to introduce new services into telecom networks and to deploy services to customers. Yet telcos operate in an on-demand age, in which customers are increasingly intolerant of the slow pace of network service delivery compared to the rapid availability of IT services.
Pipeline Webinar – A REALTIME OSS-BASED SDN APPROACH
In this dynamic webinar you’ll hear from Axel Clauberg, who is responsible for Deutsche Telekom’s IP Architecture and Designs for fixed and mobile networks. Mr. Clauberg is an outspoken advocate for the standardization of real-time OSS, and will reveal critical information for Network Equipment Providers, Service Providers and Systems Integrators. This webinar will demonstrate the importance of leveraging IETF standards of NETCONF and YANG.
We invite you to view this free webinar.
Watch Tail-f Presentation Live During Networking Field Day 7!
Tail-f presented at the recent Networking Field Day 7. This year’s event included a deep-dive of our NCS solution from the following Tail-f presenters:
- Carl Moberg, VP of Technology
- Johan Bevermyr, Senior Software Designer
- Tomas Mellgren, Product Manager
Multi-Vendor VPN Provisioning
Automatic provisioning of VPNs has been a challenge since the beginning of the millennium. But the problem is amazingly still unsolved in the industry. Tail-f NCS provides a single network-wide interface to all network devices and all network applications and services, as well as a common modeling language and data store for both services and devices.
