ConfD provides a set of northbound interfaces including NETCONF that works hand in hand with NSO which provides network automation of services across traditional and virtualized networks that are made up of both ConfD-based as well as other network elements. NSO, which has been rebranded from NCS, speaks NETCONF southbound to NETCONF based network elements including ConfD. For a multi-network management protocol environment, NSO can also work with non-NETCONF based network elements. NSO can also expose its services capabilities via northbound interfaces such as NETCONF.
