Oracle introduced the "new Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution, which is designed to enable communications service providers (CSPs) to more quickly create new network services to respond to market demand. The solution can also help CSPs reduce service development and management costs as they introduce virtualized network capabilities—the beginning of a transformation to network function virtualization (NFV) that will simplify their networks and minimize dependence on expensive, inflexible proprietary hardware.
- Quickly respond to changes in service or market demand
- Compose and on-board new network service templates and associated business rules using a flexible, graphical design environment, and then validate that these network services are operational and manage how they are scaled
- Choose and control the selection of solution components in multivendor environments. The solution leverages open standards including RESTful (web service) application programming interfaces (APIs) for integration with other management and orchestration components, such as the previously released Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator or third-party VNF managers and virtualized infrastructure managers
- Seamlessly introduce virtual network infrastructure and then manage this infrastructure and network service fulfillment when deployed as an extension of Oracle Communications’ leading operations support systems (OSS) portfolio".
