Open Device Programmability enables standards based integration to Cisco switches and routers. Whether you’re interested in provisioning, configuring, operating, accessing the data path, or simply running your app on a device, this site will get you underway.
Open, standards based protocols used to automatically assign an IP address and apply initial configuration to a network device.

NETCONF is a protocol defined by the IETF to manage a network device which defines candidate running and startup datastores and a set of create, read, update, delete (CRUD) operations based on the YANG data modeling language.
REST (REpresentational State Transfer) is a software architectural approach to communications that is used in the development of Web services. Operations are realized on top of a simple remote procedure call (RPC) layer. Protocol messages are communicated over HTTPS interfaces using standard HTTP verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.) to send and receive data to and from a network device. For managing network devices, REST interfaces are based on the YANG data modeling language using NETCONF datastores.

Automate tasks to reduce the amount of time a given task requires, reduce the opportunity for error in a given task, reduce the turnaround time for a given task, and perpetuate configuration consistency across multiple devices.
Build applications that tightly integrate with Cisco switches and routers. These applications may control and configure the network devices, retrieve operational data from the device, or even access and manipulate data flowing through the device.
Cisco service devices support hosting applications directly on the devices for network management, monitoring and other needs.
Virtual Internet Routing Lab provides a scalable, extensible network design and simulation environment.
Step-by-step tutorials that you can use with the DevNet Sandbox to learn new technologies and create working applications.
FREE 24 X 7 hosted labs for integrating and working with Cisco Technologies. Many of the labs offer dedicated hardware.
