Automation of Router Configuration with Python & SSH

My student Joram is automating router configuration for NDC Networks.

Joram configures Advantech B+B routers for NDC’s clients. The configuration is done using custom built Python Paramiko SSH script.


The routers are configured for clients of NDC, an 8 person company with 3 million EUR revenue. An estimate of 3000 to 4000 routers per year need to be configured. Based on Joram’s test, automation is 80% faster than fully manual operation, saving over a month of working time per year.
