KPI Creation using Cisco Crosswork Health Insights 4.0 and NSO v1

July 2021

Cisco Crosswork Network Automation is a micro-services platform that brings together streaming telemetry, big data, and model-driven application programming interfaces (APIs). This demonstration highlights the Cisco Crosswork applications Health Insights and Change Automation.

  • Health Insights is a network health application that performs real-time key performance indicator (KPI) monitoring, alerting, and troubleshooting.
  • Change Automation is an application that automates the process of deploying changes to the network.

Cisco Crosswork Network Automation is built to operate either as a standalone application, or as an application that utilizes Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) as a provider to deploy configuration changes.

This demo will show how NSO can be used with Crosswork.
