(Gawkwire) – 6connect, an industry leader in software-defined network control, announced today the release of a new white paper that highlights the vision and benefits of automated provisioning software for service provider managers and teams who manage data networks, hosting centers, network access, and mobile networks. The white paper Reducing Network Complexity with Automated Provisioning: How Service Providers Are Improving Efficiencies and Reducing Costs is available for free download at http://www.6connect.com/whitepaper/automated-provisioning/.
With the proliferation of smart devices, cloud-based computing, and mobile data, manual methods to provisioning have become labor-intensive and inefficient. An automated provisioning and control platform, such as 6connect’s Provision, integrates the entire network resource provisioning process, including IP address assignment, DHCP, and DNS configuration in addition to asset management.
Several important factors must be considered when choosing an automated provisioning solution, and 6connect’s white paper addresses these decisions. It explores why IP service providers are better served by automating their network resource provisioning processes rather than risking the consequences of their networks being left behind.
“6connect has put a lot of thinking into the vision behind automated network provisioning,” 6connect CEO Bill Bien said. “This white paper sets the tone for how software can dynamically and holistically provision all the network resources required to initiate and operate network and data center elements, thus improving efficiencies and reducing costs.”
