ZTE demonstrates first commercial carrier DevOps platform

March 02, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
ZTE Corporation has successfully launched the first commercially available Carrier DevOps platform, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), Barcelona, 2017. The demonstration was based entirely on the DevOps workflow, illustrating the DevOps operation environment and advantages of network slices on DevOps to customers.

ZTE first announced its industry-leading Cloud Works (Carrier DevOps) platform at MWC Barcelona in 2016. One year on, this paltform is ready for commercialisation, reflecting the rapid rate of innovation.

Cloud Works is deployed based on open virtual network function (VNF) micro-service components, DevOps tools and Docker technology, provides agile development, continuous integration and continuous delivery of services for operators or partners. This helps operators achieve scenario-oriented user segmentation and also enables on-demand functional customisation and rapid service release.

ZTE network slicing, based on Carrier DevOps, not only has the features of second-class elasticity, minute-level deployment and wizard-based Dev design, but also provides an end-to-end slicing lifecycle view, AI-driven Ops deployment and a maintenance environment, which all greatly improve the efficiency of network construction, as well as operation and maintenance (O&M).
