For network operators, developing and deploying services remains a rigid, time-consuming, and inefficient process that is heavily dependent on vendor-controlled back-office software systems. The process typically requires manually updating these monolithic and ‘hard-coded’ software platforms—almost always with help from costly professional services—which lengthens service delivery cycles, and increases costs, while decreasing competitiveness. The Blue Planet DevOps Toolkit 'turns over the keys' to Blue Planet, giving network operators greater control over their infrastructure and operational agility, enabling them to deliver new on-demand virtualized services more quickly to meet today's business challenges.
With the Blue Planet DevOps Toolkit, network operators can utilize in-house Product Development, IT and Operations personnel to on-board physical and virtual network resources and accelerate service deployment
The DevOps Toolkit leverages Blue Planet’s model- and data-driven architecture, allowing network operators to extend and enrich the management and programmability of a wide range of physical and virtual network components and devices. For example, with the DevOps Toolkit, customers can quickly on-board network resources such as Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), routing equipment, or network domains, and use these new resources to automate and accelerate the delivery of new services.
