The Industry’s Only No-Code Network Automation Platform

In the Spring of 2023, Cisco announced the end-of-life of their PRIME network automation solution. Its primary use was a Day-0 and Day-1 provisioning tool for certain Cisco-branded product lines limiting its scope and scale. With Cisco DNA Center as its replacement, it’s a great time to explore other platforms that add network automation for multi-vendor networks.

Consider a no-code approach to network management and automation, one that encompasses all vendors, and all technologies, and one that automates NetOps over the lifespan of the entire network. One that auto-discovers everything you already have (edge to cloud), and provides a contextual path-based digital twin and API integration with all of your network tools. A better choice is a solution that transforms troubleshooting, change management, and outage prevention workflows.
