Your roadmap for accelerating 5G

Meeting customers’ unique service needs once required highly customized software that led to slow, manual, complex operations—not to mention inflexible services, and limited market differentiation. Not anymore.

Now you can deliver services much more quickly and efficiently and provide the dynamic digital experiences your customers demand. Intelligent automation and 5G network slicing can make it happen.

Get the control you need to realize this opportunity at your own pace. Blue Planet’s productized, open 5G automation solution gives you a roadmap for accelerating every stage of your 5G journey—from network planning and preparation through implementation and monetization.

Accelerate your 5G journey: from preparation to monetization

How do you fast track 5G planning, operate the network more profitably, and ultimately monetize it by deploying on-demand, slice-based services? Intelligent automation enables you to avoid the limitations imposed by legacy OSS tools and processes. Explore the critical role that automation plays at every stage of your 5G transformation, and learn how you can benefit.

01. Prepare

Simplify and automate your 5G network planning and buildout

Blue Planet’s 5G Dynamic Inventory provides a comprehensive view of existing and planned physical, logical, and virtual resources from cell site to core—allowing operators to intelligently plan and scale 5G buildouts based on coverage, utilization, and capacity across multiple services and technologies. This ‘single source of truth’ for the 5G network enables the automation of key operational processes and readiness for network slicing.

02. Operate

Automating your entire 5G service lifecycle

The open, standards-based Blue Planet Intelligent Automation Portfolio streamlines 5G service and network operations, helping to reduce costs and improve service velocity. Zero-touch automation of the entire service lifecycle—from end-to-end design to orchestration and assurance—is an imperative to efficiently operate and manage dynamic services at scale across the multi-vendor RAN, transport, and core.

03. Monetize

Monetizing your 5G investment through end-to-end network slicing

Network slicing enables operators to realize the full revenue potential of 5G by delivering a range of on-demand digital services that offer differentiated customer experiences. Achieving this requires a well-defined automation solution comprised of open, vendor-agnostic, modular, cloud-native and field-proven products. Blue Planet’s open and automated approach provides a clear roadmap for operationalizing end-to-end network slicing, and aligns with different operators’ diverse and evolving paths to 5G.
