Faster Deployment, Fewer Mistakes
The role of StableNet® in zero-touch provisioning
One step closer to full automation
When a device that supports Zero-Touch Provisioning boots up, and does not find a startup configuration, it enters zero-touch provisioning mode. In Zero-Touch Provisioning, a DHCP server must be running on the same network as the new device that is being provisioned.
The DHCP server provides the URL for a zero-touch server. The device then contacts this server for a python script. The provided python script either contains the complete configuration for the new device or it provides the device a todo-list which the device follows in order to be completely configured.
StableNet® can provide a zero-touch server. With the StableNet® Config Portal the needed configuration files can be created easily. Using StableNet® as zero-touch server and a StableNet® agent to deploy the configuration, not only the process for selecting the configuration file will be simplified: it also ensures that there is a centralized log of the process, which makes troubleshooting a lot easier.

StableNet®‘s ZTP Benefits
Faster deployment, fewer mistakes
Vender independent provisioning
You no longer have to worry about finding the configuration for devices of different vendors in your inventory of configurations. Using StableNet® to provision your devices means that the correct configuration is selected using the serial number of the device.
Using the config generator portal you can test your setup using a simulation. This way you’ll be able to correct mistakes before rolling out the configuration on a bigger scale. Moreover, handwork has been identified as a major cause of failure and network problems due to misconfiguration, this will be a worry of the past using zero touch provisioning in StableNet®.
Using zero touch provisioning from StableNet®, your one time definition of configuration is applicable to a large number of devices. Not only does this make your roll-out process more efficient, you will also save time and thus money.
Less manual effort
Once you have created the setup, a new device only has to be plugged in, in order to get it configured. This means that in your offices all around the world, you no longer need a skilled technician to setup new devices and as such your skilled technicians have more time for important tasks.
