Webinar/Whitepaper: No Adaptor Taxation – Demand Standardization

It is not hard to see that existing networks lack standard programmable interfaces and that service providers are often left holding the bag when it comes to automation through vendor specific adaptors.

Additionally, the implementation of OSS activation or provisioning tools has created an unwanted “Vendor Adaptor Tax.”

NETCONF and YANG are the standards to help eliminate the need for proprietary interfaces and remove the adaptor tax. Join the revolution today by signing the petition and showing Network Equipment Providers (NEP) that you will no longer purchase proprietary interfaces.

By signing the petition you will receive the "RFP Questions for NETCONF and YANG" to help vendors understand the need to support these standards.
