When new network devices are added, it is important to ensure that they are properly configured and integrated into the existing network to prevent potential outages or security vulnerabilities. Automating acceptance protocols can help simplify and speed up this process by establishing pre-defined procedures and policies for configuring and verifying new devices.
Aautomating acceptance protocols can automatically verify whether new devices meet company security and compliance requirements before they are accepted and put into production. Additionally, automation can perform automated tests to verify connectivity, redundancy, and resiliency of new devices, which can help reduce human error and speed time to deployment. Ultimately, automating acceptance protocols can improve the efficiency and security of deploying new network elements into a company’s existing infrastructure.
