Communications Service Providers are shifting their core network functions to the cloud. Oracle has enabled CSPs for transforming business with cloud-based network services. This is done to boost cloud deployment of core network functions.
Generally, the goal was to find a cost-effective solution to fulfill the customers expectations for taking the advantage of new technologies to deploy innovative services such as voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice over wi-fi. The solution is part of the Oracle Communications intelligent orchestration framework, that assists CSPs in increasing their benefits and also guides in their adoption of Network Function Virtualization Technology.
The solution is part of the Oracle Communications intelligent orchestration framework, which helps guide CSPs in their adoption of Network Function Virtualization technology and helps them maximize its benefits.
Dana Cooperson, Research Director at Analysys Mason said via press release:
CSPs are looking to NFV as a means to both transform their networks and to generate new revenues from the increased agility enabled by network virtualization.
For them to be successful, they must take a holistic orchestration approach, based on a modular set of orchestration functions, that facilitates an increasingly dynamic, virtualized network and integrates with end-to-end business and operations processes. Such an approach, of which Oracle Network Service Orchestration Solution is one example, will best position CSPs to realize the full business benefits of their NFV investment.
Here are some new capabilities CSPs can utilize within Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution for the following:
- Easying the deployment of virtualized IMS networks that cost-effectively support a new generation of services, such as VoLTE.
- Configure customer and network traffic flows automatically. This is done by integrating with the OpenDaylight SDN Controller for scaling services up and down.
- Configure network services on the underlying hardware optimally.
- Supporting many third party virtual network functions by providing native VNF management capabilities to orchestrate VNFs that may or may not have their own VNF Manager.
Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution has been designed to operate with upstream operational systems. CSPs would get helped to quickly transition to the delivery of real-time, cloud-based services over virtual and hybrid networks.
