Zero Touch Provisioning

Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) enables the auto-configuration of factory default switches without a network administrator onsite.

When a switch is booted from its factory default configuration, ZTP autoprovisions the switch by automatically downloading and installing a firmware file, a configuration file, or both. With ZTP, even a nontechnical user (for example: a store manager in a retail chain or a teacher in a school) can deploy devices at a site.
