Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) breaks down silos by supporting end-to-end, lifecycle service orchestration across multiple technology and vendor domains.
A network operator’s infrastructure is comprised of multiple technology layers and specialized domains such as cloud, metro, access, and core networks. Creating and deploying services from end-to-end in this environment is traditionally a very manual process that entails updating multiple vendor- and domain-specific element managers, SDN controllers, or orchestrators, and then integrating these changes with the back-end Operational Support System (OSS). In addition to being complex and error-prone, this service delivery model preserves the management ‘silos’ of the legacy era, making the transformation to SDN and NFV more complex and inefficient than necessary.
Blue Planet supports MDSO capabilities, providing an open software layer that eliminates management silos and enables network operators to automate end-to-end service provisioning and orchestration. Leveraging open APIs and model-driven templates, Blue Planet integrates with third-party SDN controllers, element/network management systems, and orchestration platforms to manage and orchestrate services comprised of physical and virtual resources across multiple technology and vendor domains.
Blue Planet streamlines the process associated with defining, creating and deploying innovative new services
By seamlessly provisioning and managing service chains comprising physical network elements and virtual components, Blue Planet provides more flexibility for network operators and their customers. Services can be deployed more quickly and changed in real-time rather than requiring complex, manual changes.
