Network Copilot – Exploring the Capabilities and Utilities of a Gen AI Assistant

AI utilized in network management involves the deployment of artificial intelligence methodologies like machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing. Its objective is to enhance the effectiveness, dependability, and security of any network.
Aviz Network Copilot 1.0 serves as an AI-driven network analysis tool designed to assist network operators in identifying performance bottlenecks and resource utilization challenges within their networks. By leveraging natural language prompts, operators can easily interact with the tool to gain insights into network performance metrics and effectively address any issues that may arise. This intuitive approach enhances the efficiency of network monitoring and troubleshooting, enabling operators to maintain optimal network performance and reliability.

Capabilities:

Data ingestion and Storage:

It entails the procedures associated with gathering and housing data from SNMP and ONES Collector, which includes metric data collection from EOS, SONiC, Cumulus and NXOS. This encompasses acquiring, transforming, and preserving data in an organized format to facilitate subsequent analysis or utilization. Standardized data collection makes Network Copilot ready for multi-vendor on-prem deployments.

Chat Prompt:

Users will receive a sample question to start a conversation in a chat-based interaction. This question prompts participants to respond, steering the conversation. Additionally, the chat history can be exported using this prompt.

The end user can encounter a continuous stream of data or information as a response to the question via streaming.

Anomaly Detection:

Network Copilot 1.0 is additionally trained to identify network failures resulting from sudden increases in traffic. Such spikes in CPU and memory utilization can lead to failures in various components, including control planes or links within the network infrastructure. By recognizing these patterns, Network Copilot 1.0 can help mitigate potential disruptions and proactively address issues before they escalate, thereby enhancing network stability and performance.

Network Compliance:

The model comes pre-configured with default compliance thresholds that establish limits for all relevant metrics captured. Network Copilot is equipped to assess whether CPU, memory, bandwidth utilization, and network packet drops comply with these thresholds by comparing observed values with the predefined limits. These thresholds are customizable by users, allowing them to be adjusted as needed.
