On today’s Heavy Networking we discuss some of the advanced features related to zero touch provisioning (ZTP) on IOS-XR in this Cisco-sponsored episode.
Why advanced? Because we hit ZTP fundamentals in episode 378.
In this episode we’ll review a few ZTP basics to refresh your memory, and then talk through tooling to help with golden image creation and model-driven ZTP automation.
We also dive into the unique challenge of using ZTP to stand up access networks with lots of devices, and review ZTP security mechanisms.
Our guest is Akshat Sharma, a Technical Marketing Engineer at Cisco and a returning Packet Pushers guest.
