Hello friends in this blog I am going to give you an idea about ZTP (Zero Touch Provisioning) so let’s start with what is zero-touch provisioning?

What is ZTP?

zero touch provisioning or ztp is a method of automatically configuring devices in a network. as the name suggests the goal of ztp is to enable it and network operators to install networking devices without manual intervention.

ztp helps teams quickly deploy devices like network switches routers wireless access points and firewalls in a large scale environment it’s faster and reduces the chance of human error we’ll cover the basics of how ztp impacts business operations.

so what exactly is covered in the configuration process ztp automates steps like updating and operating systems deploying patches or bug fixes and implementing added features prior to connection it’s especially useful in environments with a lot of devices for instance.

when an organization needs to update all of its routers at once or an organization is scaling up and needs to add hundreds of devices in automating device configurations ztp brings benefits like less manual work for it teams reduce time to get network devices up and running lowered costs on manual tasks quicker and easier updating and decreased human error.

but there are two major downsides misconfiguration issues if configuration files aren’t debugged and then ztp is used and security issues are given that remote devices might have fewer security measures but equal access to the network and data does your organization use ztp why or why not leave your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to hit that like button too you
