Intelligent automation software for network operators

Accelerate digital transformation with service lifecycle automation

Network operators have embraced digital transformation to improve customer experience, reduce operational costs, and deliver a new generation of on-demand services. This transformation involves increased use of SDN , virtualization, and the cloud, and relies on open standards and automation to avoid the inflexibility and inefficiency associated with legacy OSS  and outdated manual operational processes.

The open, modular, and cloud-native Blue Planet Intelligent Automation Portfolio helps network operators accelerate their digital transformation journey with software that streamline the entire service delivery lifecycle—from planning and design to activation and assurance. The vendor-agnostic product portfolio ensures seamless interoperability with third-party BSS  and network infrastructure, without requiring extensive customization.
