Several mobile network operators use NSO to automate the configuration of network devices and services in their core networks. This includes:
Configuration of the gateway nodes, e.g. Enhanced Charging Service (ECS) configuration on ASR 5K physical devices or VNFs
Configuration of the PCRF, e.g. Cisco Policy Suite (CPS)
Provisioning of corporate networks on the Gi LAN (APN), across e.g. gateway, firewall, DPI, router, etc.
This can be done across Cisco as well as other vendor's devices and VNFs.
These configurations can be hundreds or even thousands of lines of CLI, and therefore labor-intensive and error-prone to create and maintain. They may also require consistency across multiple devices. This very much plays to NSO's strengths, enabling time- and cost savings as well as increased customer satisfaction.
I want to create a NSO service that uses grouping from 3rd party YANG model. However, this model uses a lot of absolute leafref path references that need to be changed. Although it could be done manually with substantial effort, I would like to...
Does anybody know what might cause ncs_cli to exit executing commend with: "*** CLOSE TIMEOUT ***" error message.
This might happen executing pretty much any long running command, i.e.:
echo "devices sync-from" | ncs_cli -C --user admin --stop-on-e...
Is there any pre-cooked way to get the size of a list via RESTCONF? For example, I need to get the number of devices in NSO.
I am now using the query API. but I wonder if we could use xpath in any clever way.
curl -X ...
I have an ADVA device for which the NETCONF ned is created using Pioneer package. When I try device sync-from on NSO, I am getting this error:
