Automated provisioning allows for the deployment of services without human intervention. All the installation processes are predefined and done automatically.
Traditionally, provisioning was done manually, requiring the expertise of multiple people performing multiple functions—a costly and time-consuming process that could cause the time between the order submission and activation to take weeks. Now, with automated provisioning, the process can be done through a client interface and might be done directly by the person requesting the service.
The efficiency, agility and scalability of network services is vital to the application development process. As such, it is important to select a vendor who is experienced in deploying SDN solutions before signing up for these virtual network services. This will make it easier for you to provision and manage the network resources you need throughout the entire process.
