Virtualized intercarrier service orchestration with traffic scaling capabilities

November 13, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Amdocs is introducing a new intercarrier service orchestration system that allows Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to automate traffic scaling across multiple carrier networks.

It resolves CSPs’ challenges associated with how to commit and meet enterprise Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for high performance connectivity, with the future proof advantages of an open source architecture based on Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) that provides elasticity and automated scaling.

A key business issue facing CSPs servicing multinational enterprise customers is that they need to rely on other partners across the globe to provide a complete service while committing to SLAs for end to end network connectivity. Now they can leverage the new Amdocs intercarrier service orchestration system to deliver elastic connectivity that can be spun up on demand and can be flexed to match the demands of cloud-based systems, by orchestrating the dynamic international connectivity needs of their enterprise customers.

Amdocs intercarrier service orchestration is based on ONAP open source code and uses MEF’s Lifecycle Services Orchestration (LSO) application programming interfaces (APIs) for connectivity services across multiple global networks.

"Intercarrier service orchestration solutions are a compelling example of how versatile ONAP’s architecture has already become,” said Arpit Joshipura, general manager of networking and orchestration, The Linux Foundation. “When integrated with MEF’s standards, these type of solutions can be used to solve network traffic management issues across networks. Support for intra and intercarrier operations resolves a major business problem for CSPs today specifically for enterprise customers.”
