When building a network automation solution, one of the first steps on your journey will certainly be the creation of a source of truth for your network inventory and topology. A graph platform like Neo4j is a great fit for the purpose, providing a rich, accurate and timely representation of your network.

In this webinar, Teemu Nykänen, Service Architect at Elisa will discuss with Jesús Barrasa Elisa's SDN initiatives and their experience building a live inventory and topology store with Neo4j. Elisa, based in Finland, is one of the world leaders in network automation, offering communication services in Northern Europe as well as automation solutions to other CSPs.

You will learn:

  • How the performance and flexibility of a graph-based inventory and topology engine built on neo4j can accelerate the deployment of network automation solutions to modernize your network
  • How graph technology is being used in other network management areas to build adaptive solutions to future-proof operations for major telco providers
