Opengear NetOps Automation is a platform for running applications that automate the configuration and operation of network infrastructure in data center and remote edge locations.
The platform comprises of these parts:
- Lighthouse software: The central management interface and automation controller
- Managed Devices: Target network infrastructure to automate, e.g. network switches from Cisco or Cumulus
- Operations Manager (OM) Nodes: Remote management appliances, connected to managed device management NICs via Ethernet, and/or managed device consoles via RS-232 or USB serial
- NetOps Modules: Software components that automate specific operational scenarios (e.g. network device provisioning), deployed as Docker containers on Lighthouse and/or Nodes
