Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO)

Multi-vendor, multi-layer end-to-end service automation and orchestration

Increase service velocity, improve service agility, and reduce costs with intelligent automation

As CSPs seek new revenue opportunities, their outdated Operations Support Systems (OSS) and complex multi-vendor infrastructures pose significant barriers to new technology adoption, service innovation, and customer satisfaction.

Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) is an open, multi-vendor software solution that automates service design and delivery end to end across complex multi-vendor physical and virtual domains, eliminating management silos, accelerating service fulfillment, and dramatically simplifying operations.


No. 1

Modular and programmable design improves end-to-end service control and visibility across any mix of physical and virtual domains: cloud, WAN, NFV, IP/MPLS, and more.

No. 2

Low-code platform enables rapid implementation and configuration, in contrast to the expensive and highly customized solutions offered by incumbent B/OSS vendors.

No. 3

Eliminates costs, delays, and errors associated with manual service design and fulfillment processes.

No. 4

Support for open, standards-based interfaces—defined by the MEF, ETSI, TMF and others—enables loose coupling with B/OSS components, SDN controllers, NMS/EMS, and cloud management platforms.

No. 5

Built on a cloud-native architecture, MDSO can be flexibly deployed in customer clouds, on customer premises, or consumed in an elastic SaaS model—in alignment with CSP business objectives and goals.

No. 6

Blue Planet MDSO—together with Service Order Management and Unified Assurance and Analytics—enables fully automated service lifecycle management in a closed loop.

In addition to increasing service velocity and reducing service fulfillment OPEX, MDSO’s DevOps-style resource onboarding and service development enables the easy and iterative incorporation of new resources and technologies.

With its powerful capabilities, Blue Planet MDSO enables seamless network and service transformation, helping CSPs modernize their operations environment and evolve toward highly virtualized and cloud-based service models, and fully automated service lifecycle management.
