IETF standard YANG specified by RFC 6020 is a data modeling language used to model configuration and state data manipulated by the network configuration protocol (NETCONF), NETCONF remote procedure calls, and NETCONF notifications.
NCX support for YANG enables DevOps teams to develop device packages with a standard data modeling language, and also allows them to write applications using the standard data modeling languages instead of relying on vendor specific ones.
South Bound Extensibility – Includes basic device models, common network operations, notifications and others. Partners and customers can add their own device models or extend Anuta provided models to suit their needs.
North Bound Abstraction – Provides cloud and other north bound orchestration tools to utilize a normalized network service operation model for major functionalities including Firewall, ADC, IPS, VPN and others.
Partners can utilize NCX to develop customer specific network and service models to provide value added services, for faster time-to-market. Customers can utilize NCX to fine tune NCX models to match their production needs.
