Altiostar stands at the forefront of mobile network transformation, providing Open vRAN solutions for the world’s largest 5G networks, including Rakuten Mobile. For the product teams developing them, however, these solutions can get complicated—especially when it comes to configuration management. The debate was whether Altiostar wanted to build all that functionality from scratch or leverage an existing solution.
Read how ConfD provides the management interfaces, including NETCONF, for all Altiostar’s 5G Open vRAN solutions while meeting diverse customer needs and help prepare for future cloud and physical network functions.

Migrating from a CLI NED to a NETCONF NED for an existing Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) service application can be challenging. This application note provides you with examples and details on how to best use a NETCONF NED and steps to make migration from a CLI NED easier. Our application note is divided into 4 sections:
Download the “How to Migrate from a CLI NED to a NETCONF NED” application note to learn the benefits and best practices for interfacing with network elements using NETCONF instead of CLIs
NETCONF and YANG Automation Testing Demo/Tutorial
We are excited to share with you first hand our interactive introduction to NETCONF & YANG Application Testing driven by Cisco NSO, an industry-leading orchestration platform for hybrid networks, and a free add-on test tool called DrNED Examiner.
The demo walks you through setting up NSO and the necessary tools and then provides an interactive tutorial that demonstrates a few of the main features of NETCONF & YANG Automation Testing including:
Do you know if your network device has implemented NETCONF and YANG properly according to industry standards and is compliant with automation best practices for seamless integration into Service Orchestration software?
Join our webinar to learn the key reasons for doing NETCONF and YANG Automation Testing and the kinds of interoperability problems that can be caught upfront. The webinar will be a brief tutorial on the use of NSO and will include a full demo on how to properly use testing tools to discover the potential problems that can be uncovered during testing.

It’s no surprise that we have a close relationship with EANTC as we have participated in many of their Multi-Vendor Interoperability Test events over the years. Clearly, our focus has been on NETCONF and YANG interoperability at these events.
This fall, the EANTC Interop event will take place virtually and, for the first time, NETCONF and YANG interoperability testing will be the sole topic of this interop event. We are excited about this event and expect to see increased participation from many vendors and can’t wait for the interoperability results to be posted after the event.
We strongly encourage you to participate in this NETCONF & YANG focused interop event.
This fall, an exciting event will take place at EANTC. For the first time, NETCONF and YANG interoperability testing will be the sole topic of an interop event.
For many years, programmability driven by NETCONF and YANG was a "marketing checklist item." In the past, programmability was considered a buzzword and something trendy to be included on the network device features list as simply a checklist item. Not anymore.
