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 fulfillment end to end across complex multivendor, multilayer, and multidomain 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 on Kubernetes on-premises, in any cloud environment, 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. 1

Zero-touch model-driven service fulfillment eliminates OPEX, delays, and human errors associated with legacy manual operations and accelerates time to revenue by up to 99 percent.

No. 2

Open, vendor-agnostic approach leveraging standard interfaces from MEF, ETSI, TM Forum, and others; speeds service innovation and network evolution; helps avoid vendor lock-in.

No. 3

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

No. 4

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

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