The DNA Assurance Workflow is What Ensures Network Stability
Cisco's Digital Network Architecture (DNA) comprises four main workflows: design, policy, provision, and assurance. Each workflow contains a set of guidelines for successfully deploying intent-based networks. The assurance workflow is designed to keep those networks operational once they are built.
Cisco's DNA architecture uses AI/ML routines to analyze network data to pinpoint any possible issues both before they become a problem and while issues are occurring. Network data is collected and stored in highly efficient databases both onsite and in the cloud for processing. These AI algorithms help correlate network data for both mitigation and remediation. It organizes the firehose of information collected by networks into human-readable forms for analysis.
The assurance workflow for Cisco's DNA completes the network lifecycle loop by helping network admins ensure networks stay operational. Intent-based networks are designed to be highly automated, so traditional tools for analyzing and understanding network operations may not be efficient enough. The AI algorithms designed by Cisco are built to complement the speed at which these networks can be designed and deployed.
