Welcome to the July edition of Programmability Monthly. We've undergone a slight facelift, but we're serving up the same great content you've come to expect each issue.
Read on to learn how Ribbon Communications uses NYAT to reduce its dev cycles and improve customer confidence, plus a new application note on the ConfD gNMI Adapter, and more.

For NEPs, complying with standard interfaces like NETCONF and standardized data model-driven programmability via YANG standards in the lab, and relying on them in real-world production environments, are two different things.
See how Ribbon uses the NETCONF & YANG Automation Testing (NYAT) program to thoroughly test its implementations in production-like scenarios and identify issues before deploying with customers, instead of scrambling to patch them after the fact.
ConfD does not directly provide a gNMI northbound interface (NBI), but it does provide APIs that can be used to implement (full or partial) gNMI functionality.
A new demo project called ConfD gNMI Adapter has been started at ConfD-Developer on GitHub. The project does not aim to provide full, production-grade gNMI functionality. Rather, it is a starting point.
Download our new “gNMI Adapter for ConfD” application note, which describes the example project and how to implement a gNMI Adapter using existing ConfD APIs.
Network operators need to be able to collect statistical, performance, and status information from the devices in their network in order to monitor network health, collect information for billing, and be aware of changes in their networks. Traditional ways of collecting this data, using a poll model, hit a dead-end for the continuously growing amount of data that needs to be collected.
Mark your calendar for September 9th at 10:00 a.m. PDT to learn about the YANG Push standard which enables a more efficient and configurable way for Network Devices to push data to subscribed clients.
We'll share more info and how to sign-up next month!
Network programmability driven by NETCONF and YANG is inherently transactional and a key enabler for automated solutions that are rock-solid.
