Oracle Debuts Network Service Orchestration Solution

Oracle introduced its new Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution to enable communications service providers (CSPs) to more quickly create new network services to respond to market demand.

The solution is part of the Oracle Communications intelligent orchestration framework, which gathers and analyzes network performance information, evaluates the network’s operation against predefined policies and business rules, and can trigger the appropriate action to automatically modify the behavior of services, network functions, and virtualized infrastructure.

Specifically, the Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution fulfills and extends the role of the NFV Orchestrator as defined by the ETSI NFV Industry Standards Group.  Because it has a semantic understanding of each network service, the Oracle Communications solution can calculate and apply configuration changes, including updates to the network topology or service context data—critical for orchestrating network services through their full lifecycle.

Oracle said its solution 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.

“CSPs are taking the first steps toward network virtualization—something they know they must do to compete for the long-term. This is a journey, not just a moment in time, which is why we have outlined an end-to-end intelligent orchestration framework. Our approach will provide CSPs with the business and service agility required to make progress toward full NFV. With our new Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration solution, we are continuing to deliver on our vision for NFV,” said Barry Hill, global head of NFV, Oracle Communications.

“NFV is complex, and CSPs have made it clear that to be successful, they need comprehensive orchestration. The new Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration solution is a direct response to this need. It allows for dynamic network operation, enabling the transformation of the business—not just the network. With these developments and an expanding portfolio of virtualized network functions, endorsement of Open Stack, leading OSS solutions, and strong IT heritage, Oracle Communications is enabling service providers to fully embrace the NFV opportunity,” said Liam Maxwell, vice president of products, Oracle Communications.
