Blue Planet® Virtual Edge Automation

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has many potential benefits to service providers, improving service agility and lowering opex while helping generate incremental revenue streams. To enhance the competitiveness of their enterprise services portfolio, network operators are beginning to deploy a select group of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs)—like firewalls, routers, and SD-WAN edges—to offer value-added, managed services for generating incremental revenue streams. Operators however, must move away from the slow, cumbersome ways of operating these service offerings which may hamper their innovation, delay their deployment, and cause disruptions when modifying services that impact customer satisfaction. Our Virtual Edge Automation solution streamlines and accelerates the initial launch and lifecycle management of NFV-based network services.
