About Blue Planet

Intelligent automation software solutions

As the market for communications services continues to evolve and intensify, communication service providers (CSPs) are under pressure to transform. Shortening innovation cycles and delivering new digital services that monetize their investments in technologies like 5G is no longer optional—it can mean the difference between thriving or becoming obsolete.

Blue Planet is on a mission to help CSPs accelerate their transformation to become software-driven, digital businesses. How? By providing the industry’s first OSS platform that converges design, delivery, and assurance applications for networks and services. The Blue Planet Intelligent Automation Portfolio provides a future-proof solution that uniquely helps CSPs optimize and automate their operations and streamline the introduction of new services across any network domain or vendor, without creating costly and inefficient operational silos. Whether they are introducing a new service or replacing a legacy system, Blue Planet’s proven—and productized—platform provides CSPs with a sustainable approach for OSS modernization that avoids extensive customizations, giving them the flexibility they need to thrive in a rapidly shifting market.

Blue Planet has played a critical part in the automation initiatives for some of the largest and most sophisticated CSPs worldwide, such as Deutsche Telekom, Dish Wireless, and BT Group. And as a division of Ciena, we bring unrivaled expertise across network, cloud, and software to help our customers accelerate their digital transformation.
