Chris Cubbage & Mansour Karam, San Jose

In this episode we dive into Intent Based Networking with Mansour Karam, CEO and founder of Apstra, Inc., based in Menlo Park, California.

Apstra has pioneered Intent-Based Networking and Intent-Based Analytics to simplify how data centre networks are built and operated. The privately funded company has recently announced a deployment by Awnix, a provider of cloud services and products, for the first AOS supported deployment of OpenSwitch (OPX) on Dell Z9100-ON switches in a Tier 1 service provider production network. AOS is a hardware-inclusive, closed-loop intent-based distributed operating system that automates the full lifecycle of network operations and enables the network to configure itself, fix itself and defend itself.

The telecom service provider deployment includes a combined solution as part of a hybrid cloud for OpenStack Deployments and is part of an open IaaS network infrastructure offering. The Awnix, Dell EMC, Apstra solution provides a cloud platform that increases business agility through an autonomous or Self-Operating Network™ that delivers log-scale improvements in CapEx, OpEx and capacity.
