Use data analytics to drive innovation and value throughout your network infrastructure
Network and IT professionals capture immense amounts of data from their networks. Buried in this data are multiple opportunities to solve and avoid problems, strengthen security, and improve network performance. To achieve these goals, IT networking experts need a solid understanding of data science, and data scientists need a firm grasp of modern networking concepts. Data Analytics for IT Networks fills these knowledge gaps, allowing both groups to drive unprecedented value from telemetry, event analytics, network infrastructure metadata, and other network data sources.
Drawing on his pioneering experience applying data science to large-scale Cisco networks, John Garrett introduces the specific data science methodologies and algorithms network and IT professionals need, and helps data scientists understand contemporary network technologies, applications, and data sources.
After establishing this shared understanding, Garrett shows how to uncover innovative use cases that integrate data science algorithms with network data. He concludes with several hands-on, Python-based case studies reflecting Cisco Customer Experience (CX) engineers’ supporting its largest customers. These are designed to serve as templates for developing custom solutions ranging from advanced troubleshooting to service assurance.
