Arrow Quick Hit Redefining zero touch ops with Arista Cognitive Campus

May 01, 2024 | Larry Bourgeois

Arista's Cognitive Campus starts with CloudVision CUE (CV-CUE), a cloud or on-premises service designed for zero-touch operations that ensures seamless and secure wired and wireless networking. 

Arista CV-CUE automates routine network provisioning, configuration and maintenance tasks and reduces manual intervention. This automation improves agility, accelerates time-to-deployment and enhances overall network responsiveness. 

Arista's Cognitive Campus includes:

  • A comprehensive series of Wi-Fi APs for both indoor and outdoor use, that features the most updated wireless technology. 
  • A range of switch options, from compact and fixed form factor to high-end fixed form factor which provide versatile port densities ranging from 12 to 96 ports and speeds spanning from 1G to 25G. 
  • CloudVision AGNI, which seamlessly integrates with identity providers, provides robust network access control and ensures a fast and secure deployment process. 
  • Cognitive capabilities deliver real-time insights into performance, security threats and user behavior enabling proactive monitoring, troubleshooting and optimization to maintain peak network performance and reliability. 

Why should you care?

Your time is valuable and the reliability of your customers' networks are critically important. Arista's CV-CUE provides the epitome of seamless, zero-touch operations excellence. It truly is a hands-free operational solution that will save time deploying, monitoring and maintaining networks. Wired and wireless networks can be set up in minutes, not hours. Predictive insights across the entire network provide an even more refined zero-touch operational model. 

How does it work?

From Day 0, CV-CUE is at the center of the Arista Zero Touch Operations Model. 

Day 0 

Arista pre-provisions and builds design templates for you, so when your appliances arrive, they are ready to connect with base configurations. This provides a strong foundation on which to build your network. 

Day 1

Connect appliances to your network and they will automatically begin provisioning to your CV-CUE instance. You'll be able to organize your appliances by location and apply policies for segmentation and optimization. 

Day 2 and beyond

This is where Arista's Cognitive Campus networking efficiencies really come to fruition. AIOps and troubleshooting will keep devices securely connected and optimize performance. Change controls will ensure that updates can be made without bringing down the network or causing disruptions. Application QoE will keep critical applications prioritized and users productive. 

CV-CUE uses a single pane of glass to monitor Wi-Fi access points and switches. CV-CUE shows switch details and provides information about connectivity, performance and security-related issues. This results in fast mean time to resolution for troubleshooting and restoring networking services that impact users and endpoint devices.
