Blue Planet Orchestration

Accelerate service velocity, improve service agility, and reduce service fulfilment OPEX

Blue Planet Orchestration (BPO) is an open, modular, and cloud-native software suite that helps network operators improve customer experience, reduce OPEX, and achieve their business goals by automating service fulfilment end-to-end across complex multi-vendor, multi-layer, and multi-domain networks.

The vendor-agnostic BPO suite is fully programmable and easily modified in a low-code/no-code approach using our graphical Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which facilitates service innovation and avoids the costs and risks associated with customizing legacy operational support systems (OSS). It can also be flexibly deployed in private and public clouds or consumed in an elastic software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, letting you modernize and automate your order-to-service processes in complete alignment with your technical and business needs.

No. 3

Cloud native software built on a container- and microservices-based architecture that can be flexibly deployed on prem or consumed in a cloud-based elastic SaaS model.

No. 4

Full network and service visibility and control end-to-end across complex multi-vendor, multi-layer domains co-hybrid physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructure.

BPO consists of three modular software products—Service Order Orchestration (SOO), Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO), and Multi-Cloud Orchestration (MCO) that can be deployed individually or combined to fully automate the order-to-service process.
