Google on Automation
I'm not surprised because google to me was already doing things like that but know I sure it will be more of this automation to make it wasier for them as a company. Automation can be good and beneficial and it may also be a also but we'll see in the long run.

Re: Google on Automation
I agree. It seems like a natural progression. Network automation can be very beneficial. I am really curious to see how this works in production.

@batye:

I am sure all will have their own share of apprehensions besides the excitement. It is not practical to expect 100% in first cut. But certainly it will get there eventually.

Re: Google on Automation
Let's see what happens with it as the transformation does in fact occur.  What I am curious about is what Google is doing to try and elevate their engagement in the home incorporating Rasperry PI.   Hopefully the community is able to chime in.

Re: Google on Automation
Just because it does not work does not 100% does not mean that we can't try it--admittedly it gets tougher as the transformation continues.

Re: Google on Automation
@clrmoney, I agree. Google has the tools, money and resources to embark on this initiative unlike some startup companies who do not have that advantage.

Google has a history of innovation in things in general. I wouldn't be surprised to see something more come from this later as they get into it.

Network Strain
Network strain has always been a problem. I am surprised the problem has not been solved before now. As long as companies develop more devices, more features and more ways to connect, consumer usage will increase. This issue should have been resolved a long time ago.

 

Google is building a "Google Assistant for Networking" tool that relies on intent-based networking technologies to automate some of the processes used in managing data centers and other infrastructure. Vijoy Pandey, Google's head of engineering for data centers and backbone networks, said at MPLS, SDN and NFV World Congress 2018 in Paris that around a quarter of Internet traffic now originates from Google, and the humans are what's stressing the network the most.

Re: Network Strain
Network strain is definitely a problem. Another job I have is teaching online. My employer recently upgraded the entire platform. And while the format was great, it clearly hadn't been tested to handle any kind of strain. So over the weekend, when everyone was suddenly online at the same time for their classes, most of us struggled to get in and have/teach classes. It was a problem that ended up taking about 7 hours for them to fix. On the bright side, I got extra sleep and paid for it. Such is life with technology.

It makes sense to automate network functions. This will save time and money and increase customer satisfaction.

Network Automation
This is great. I remember working with network engineers and when a network failure occured a network engineer had to be called in the middle of the night. The company had to wait for the employee to get dressed, drive to the office and the begin troubleshooting the problem. Automation will reduce the resolution time greatly.

Network Industry
I am curious to see how network automation will impact the network industry - network engineers, manager and other network industry staff. Will they loose their jobs because the demand for network engineers will decrease as automation of networks increases.

Re: Network Industry
Knowing Google, they may become so innovative that even with automation, network engineers would still have plenty to do. It's not like Google to get ahead and let off the gas. But that might not happen soon if it does at all.

As I read this, my first reaction was :  really--Yes they're innovative but wouldn't one think that they'd come up with something more than just--AUTOMATION?

Re: Network Industry
@freehe - I don't really believe that anyone in tech will ever be truly replaced. They just may have to change their job skills to adapt to an ever changing market. If they aren't needed to check for bugs in a program, they may be needed to oversee security or write new programs. It's a job that will always need people, no matter how automated it gets. In my opinion, anyway.

Re: Network Industry
As all know here throughout TT, I have had my reservations and the need to maintain the sense of humanity has been at the heart of my deliberation.   I hope you're right for the sake of the future--as there is massive displacement no matter what study one looks at and there lies the challenge.

Re: Network Industry
@mpouraryan - I completely agree. We need to maintain a sense of humanity if we expect to keep our society out of a feudalistic nightmare. I've stated before in Japan they don't believe in allowing technology to replace the job of a person, even if that means someone saves money somewhere. But their culture is completely different. There is a general desire to cherish others and their value and role in society.

Re: Network Industry
@elizabethv  I agree somewhat. First, I do feel that some people in tech will be replaced, however others can be trained to do other jobs. We need more training in the industry, and people in tech need to think in advance before it's too late. Training is key.

Re: Network Industry
I think a lot of people in general change jobs far more than they ever have. It is starting to become the norm more than the exception. Even my friend, whose job is in tech, as the Network Administrator of the High School she teaches at, is currently going to school to get into Medical Billing and Coding. She is tired of being fully responsible for the schools entire network. Of being the one that gets called whenever there is even the slightest of tech problems. I would think, at one point in her life, the job was what she really wanted. But now she's just over being so responsible for something that isn't holding her interest like it used to.

Re: Network Industry
@elizabethv Your friend probably acted as the school's IT person, and IT people are constantly called on because, of course, everything breaks all the time, or doesn't work. I can never imagine being responsible for an entire school network! The job's shelf life has expired for her. Good for her for moving on!

Re: Network Industry
@srufolo1 - That is exactly how she has been treated, and for about 20 years now. Most things tend to go wrong right around when grades need to be submitted. And suddenly she has to teach the teach who refused to enter their grades into the system all semester long, how to enter a semesters worth of grades in one night. It is more than time for her to move on.
