Tell me what you want, what you really, really want: Intent-Based Networks and the rise of Domain Specific Languages in Networking
IEEE CTN Issue: July 2017
This month we take a quick look at the role of domain specific languages in future telecoms networks, prodded into this topic by Cisco's recent promotion of intent based networks, which we argue are just another example of DSL.
Is the future of network management as simple as high-level policy statements? Where else do we see domain specific languages popping up in telecoms? We take a crack at answering these questions but your insights are always welcome in the comments section.
