Software and communications services company Amdocs announced that it will equip Globe Telecom (Globe) with a network technology that will allow it to provide its clients with highly flexible and scalable cloud-based network services that they can easily configure, customize and monitor to better serve end-customers.
Through Amdocs’ Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) orchestration solution, Globe will be able to automate the operations and management of its 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,” said Gil Genio, chief technology and information officer at Globe. “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,”
“Globe Telecom is accelerating their enterprise business growth by addressing their customers’ needs to better serve the digital society of tomorrow,” said Anthony Goonetilleke, group president, Media, Network and Technology, Amdocs. “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.”
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 innovative 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.
