Intent-Based Analytics: Prevent Network Outages and Gray Failures
Intent-Based Analytics enables network architects and operators to create high-level conditions for alerting on any set of telemetry from the network. The conditions are defined from user intent, so they are constantly updated when new devices or policies are deployed in the network. Join us on Tuesday, February 6 will provide an introduction to the capabilities of this exciting new feature.
