Closed-Loop Automation

What is Closed Loop Automation (CLA) ? Today’s network infrastructure is dynamic and complex. Snowballing applications served by on-demand workloads hosted across hybrid clouds, a proliferation of overlays, and many more complex scenarios cannot be supported by NetOps teams who are used to working on one device at a time. The traditional process that is tedious, inefficient, and error-prone that often results in network outages is not for this new world of networking. However, does network automation solve all your problems?

Organizations are looking beyond open-ended automation tools that handle device configurations. Enter Closed-Loop Automation (CLA) – A framework that continually validates the network in real-time, identify problems, and takes automated remediation actions by upholding the policy to ensure 100% network uptime.

A network outage lasting only a single hour can cost a business more than $300,000

How does Closed-Loop Automation work?

Benefits of ATOM's Closed Loop Automation

Identify, Isolate, and fix known issues faster

ATOM’s CLA  constantly verifies and upholds your network policy. In the case of any violation, it can automatically enforce corrective actions thus reducing MTTR, and augmenting the human efforts in network troubleshooting.

Reduce Human errors

By automating repetitive tasks, ATOM’s CLA eliminates the need for manual intervention and human errors. It helps NetOps to realize consistent problem resolution each time, every time.

Reduce MTTR and accelerate troubleshooting

Following a guide or cheat sheet for troubleshooting a network issue does to relieve you of the effort, the time taken and eventually the revenue loss associated. Shift gears with ATOM CLA, and automate all your known troubleshooting techniques

Enhance customer experience

ATOM Closed Loop Automation ensures faster delivery of services and prompt resolution of issues without sacrificing quality translating into an elevated and consistent customer experience

What’s unique to ATOM's Closed Loop Automation

Multiple ways to express policies

ATOM’s CLA framework offers multiple ways of expressing the policies. Basic & Advanced use cases can be stated to reflect granular control of the information you are looking for. Using ATOM CLA, one can create multiple alerting conditions with multiple severities in the same policy, and their corresponding actions.

Trigger CLA use cases with Analytics & Telemetry

ATOM collects information from multiple data sets. This gives ATOM a clear insight into the network events and performance KPIs. Based on the baselines created, ATOM can monitor the network for any breaches and trigger the Closed Loop Automation framework to take actions to ensure automated service assurance

Offers more control to NetOps through Workflow Integration

While ATOM’s CLA can be your driver for an autonomous network, not everyone is up for it. To bring more control to the NetOps, ATOM’s Closed Loop Automation is integrated into ATOM’s workflow automation offering automated ticketing to trigger approval sequences before executing the remediation steps through the same workflow.

Get notified & don’t miss your network

ATOM’s CLA framework powered by its network monitoring supports Alert routing. Upon any breach in the network, set a severity as you wish and notify the NetOps teams over Email, Slack or even raise alarms to get back all the eyes on the network. Upcoming integrations include Microsoft Teams & Cisco Teams.
