Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO)

Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) is very powerful tool which can greatly reduce the human effort to manually configure the production routers, switches, firewalls from different vendors; standardize the config; and reduce possible input errors. The technicians are no longer required to copy and paste hundreds of lines of code via CLI. It is also a useful central database to store different versions of production configurations.

For the end user, it is relatively easy to use. However, some training and practice is a must because the NSO is not as straightforward as the traditional router CLI. For the administrator, Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) is just like another program running on the Linux system--there is no big difference.
