Cisco NSO is the leading network automation platform for enterprises and service providers. When successfully deployed, lead-times for provisioning of network services are reduced from weeks to minutes and manual configuration errors are minimized, leading to better network quality. 

However, implementing Cisco NSO comes with a series of challenges that can prove costly unless you have the skills and experience to manage them.

Typical NSO challenges include: 

  • Lack of internal software skills 
  • Learning curve of the platform 
  • NSO Integrations with other support systems 
  • Efficient setup of automated NSO quality assurance including a lab network 
  • Getting buy-in from operations teams
