US-based telecom software maker Amdocs has announced that it will equip local carrier Globe Telecom with a network technology solution that will modernize and automate its platforms and business processes, particularly for its enterprise clients.
This will enable the telecommunications firm to provide its enterprise clients with flexible and scalable cloud-based network services that they can configure, customize, and monitor to better serve end-customers.
Through Amdocs’ Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) orchestration solution, Globe will be able to transform its network to automate operations and management of their Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) offering for a wide range of network services.
This includes Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN), security services, bandwidth on-demand, mobile core network related services (vEPC and vIMS), and other value-added applications.
Globe’s NaaS offering uses Software Defined Networking (SDN) and virtualization technologies, as well as a rich Virtual Network Function (VNF) ecosystem orchestrated by Amdocs’ NFV solution. This is also powered by the Linux Foundation’s Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP).
“The flexibility and scalability of NFV will streamline the way we can interact with our enterprise customers. It will allow us to empower our enterprise customers with simpler and faster on-demand provisioning of network services that they can customize to better serve their end-customers,” said Gil B. Genio, Globe chief technology and information officer.
Under the five-year service agreement, Amdocs’ solution will enable Globe to activate, provision, and manage multiple network services on the cloud from a wide range of third-party network software and equipment providers. Amdocs will deliver the capabilities using DevOps methodology, which enables faster evolution and implementation of quick changes to adapt to market demands.
Anthony Goonetilleke, group president for media, network, and technology at Amdocs, commented: “Over the years we have invested heavily in the Open NFV ecosystem powering initiatives such as ONAP to bring highly scalable network solutions to the market. These proven technology solutions turn static networks into smart networks – opening and automating the network – enabling rich end-to-end services, while continuously evolving to meet the dynamic needs of today’s digital enterprises.”
