Amdocs delivers new NFV portfolio powered by ONAP
Software and services provider Amdocs has introduced a new portfolio featuring modular capabilities that accelerate service design, virtualisation and operating capabilities on demand.
The new Amdocs Network Function Virtualization (NFV), which is powered by Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), is claimed by the company to be the first and most comprehensive software and services offering that leverages open source networking technology which can be deployed either locally or in the public cloud using modern dev-ops adoption techniques.
Amdocs is a founding creator of a number of significant ONAP modules which has a first-mover advantage with important modules like Amdocs Service Design and Create to automate service design, and Amdocs Active Inventory for a unified live view of services powered by ONAP.
This means that the company has already been working with many early adopter and galaxy operators including work on pragmatic approaches to manage service design and creation, on-boarding of virtualised service functions, monitoring of active inventory in hybrid networks and the continuous, elastic maintenance of the network itself. This will help operators looking for adaptable, scalable, software-driven networks based on cloud and microservices technologies.
Gary Miles, general manager at Amdocs, said: "Open source brings unparalleled agility and innovation to the market. In such a dynamic environment, it is important that the industry is able to package open source contributions into a mature capability set for live network operations. This is what we have achieved with the Amdocs NFV powered by ONAP professional portfolio."
