ATOM AVA is a comprehensive AI virtual assistant powered by natural language processing and advanced machine learning techniques. It comprises four essential components- Copilot, Doc Assistant, Operator Assistant, and Guided Troubleshooting, each contributing to its transformative capabilities.

Why do you need ATOM AVA?

ATOM AVA offers a wide range of enhanced capabilities:

  • Simplified Management: Natural language and Generative AI interfaces powered by ATOM AVA make network management accessible to non-technical users.
  • Reduced Errors: ATOM AVA’s insights reduce human errors, ensuring consistent network behavior aligned with defined intention.
  • Adaptability: ATOM AVA adapts to network operator preferences by providing context-sensitive insights.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: ATOM AVA avoids network operator tedium in going through complex product manuals or navigating into deeply nested GUI features.
  • Improved Network Performance: ATOM AVA proactively identifies anomalies and suggests optimization recommendations and issue remediations.


Now, let’s dive into each of the four foundational components of ATOM AVA, defining features, benefits, and the importance of each before elaborating on real-world use cases.

1. Co-pilot: Auto Code Generation

The co-pilot feature in ATOM AVA is responsible for simplifying code generation and accelerating workflow development through natural language understanding and automation.


  • Natural Language Interface: Co-pilot understands plain language queries and intent descriptions from users.
  • Code Generation: Co-pilot generates code, including complex formats like BPMN, based on the described intent.
  • Low-Code Automation: Co-pilot minimizes the need for manual scripting.


  • Accelerates Workflow Development: Co-pilot significantly speeds up the creation of automation workflows.
  • Reduces Errors: Co-pilot utilizes BPMN best practices and eliminates human errors in code, ensuring accuracy.
  • Efficiency: Network engineers can focus on higher-level tasks, as Co-pilot helps with coding details.

Co-pilot simplifies the development of automation workflows, making them accessible to a broader range of users and ensuring the efficiency and accuracy of code generation.

Use Case: Generate BPMN code for ServiceNow Integration.

Imagine you need to integrate ServiceNow intoyou’re a network monitoring system, a task that typically requires complex BPMN code. With Co-pilot, you simply describe theintent with, “Integrate ServiceNow with our network monitoring system.” Co-pilot understands your intent, generates the necessary BPMN code, and accelerates workflow development, ensuring accuracy in the integration process.

2. Guided Troubleshooting: RCA Guiding Infrastructure

The Guided Troubleshooting feature in ATOM AVA aids root cause analysis by leveraging its knowledge base and interactive impact analysis.


  • Knowledge Base: Guided Troubleshooting taps into a vast knowledge base of network issues, solutions, and historical data.
  • Interactive Impact Analysis: This feature guides users through troubleshooting, helping them identify and address network problems.


  • Faster Issue Resolution: Guided Troubleshooting speeds up identifying and resolving network issues.
  • Reduced Downtime: Interactive guidance minimizes network downtime during issue resolution.
  • Efficient Resource Utilization: Network teams can allocate resources more efficiently by focusing on critical issues.

Guided Troubleshooting is essential for maintaining network uptime, reducing operational costs, and ensuring that network problems are addressed swiftly and effectively.

Use Case: Why did the BGP routes flap last Saturday at 11 p.m.?

Guided Troubleshooting uses its knowledge base to perform a root cause analysis. A potential root cause could be a misconfiguration in the BGP, link status, or neighbor relationships. ATOM AVA will predict potential route flap incidents based on historical data and network conditions. This allows for proactive measures to prevent flaps before they occur.

In some cases, ATOM AVA can automate the remediation process. For example, suppose a particular issue consistently causes a specific BGP route flap. In that case, ATOM AVA can automatically apply a predefined fix, such as a route-dampening policy or configuration rollback, guiding you to the specific issue and helping you resolve it quickly, minimizing downtime. ATOM AVA would then update the knowledge base with details of the identified root cause and the steps taken for resolution.

3. Doc Assistant: Knowledge Base

The Doc Assistant feature in ATOM AVA provides instant access to a vast knowledge base, facilitating onboarding and knowledge retrieval.


  • Extensive Knowledge Base: Doc Assistant stores information on generic network configurations, best practices, and troubleshooting guides.
  • Natural Language Query: Users can ask questions in plain language to retrieve relevant information.
  • Human-Readable Responses: Doc Assistant provides concise and easy-to-understand answers.



  • Efficient Onboarding: New team members can quickly get up to speed with network configurations and practices.
  • Reduced Information Overload: Doc Assistant delivers information in a digestible format, avoiding information overload.
  • Improved Productivity: Access to a knowledge base saves time and reduces reliance on colleagues for information.


Doc Assistant is crucial for efficient knowledge management, ensuring team members can access accurate information whenever needed.

Use Case: How do you change the device polling period in ATOM?

Sarah is a new team member. Instead of searching through manuals, she asks ATOM AVA, “How do you change the device polling period in ATOM?” Doc Assistant retrieves the relevant information from its knowledge base and provides a straightforward answer, expediting Sarah’s task.

4. Operator Assistant: Workflow Execution via Prompts

The Operator Assistant feature in ATOM AVA is designed to automate routine operational tasks and workflows through natural language prompts.


  • Workflow Execution: Operator Assistant executes predefined workflows based on user prompts.
  • Natural Language Interface: Users can request task execution in plain language.
  • Error Avoidance: Automation reduces the chances of human errors in operational tasks.


  • Efficient Onboarding: New team members can quickly get up to speed with network configurations and practices.
  • Reduced Information Overload: Doc Assistant delivers information in a digestible format, avoiding information overload.
  • Improved Productivity: Access to a knowledge base saves time and reduces reliance on colleagues for information.

Operator Assistant is essential for operational efficiency, error reduction, and maintaining consistent network operations.

Use Case: Which ATOM workflows ran on the core router in the last 24 hours?

Suppose you need to know which ATOM workflows ran on the core router in the last 24 hours. Instead of manual checks, you can ask ATOM AVA, “Which ATOM workflows ran on the core router in the last 24 hours?” Operator Assistant executes the necessary queries and provides you with the results, saving time and ensuring task accuracy.

Each component of ATOM AVA serves a unique purpose in simplifying network automation, troubleshooting, knowledge management, and operational efficiency. They transform network management into a more efficient, accurate, and accessible process, improving network performance and reliability.
