As functionality moves away from the core, hubs are shifting from housing specialized RF networks to commodity fiber-based IP networks. Trading RF for IP based networks simplifies the physical work and time required by a technician to setup and maintain the physical aspect. As a tradeoff, additional complexity is added in configuring and maintaining software configuration. In this paper, we will discuss how we reduced complexity and eliminates repetitive, manual tasks by embracing an approach that automates the delivery and management of infrastructure. We will also present some essential steps and best practices that were used in managing the rollout of automation.
