Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator Helps Service Providers Launch Services Considerably Faster
Oracle today announced the release of Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator, which manages the lifecycle of a virtual network function—a software component that can be deployed on a virtualized infrastructure—to help launch next-generation network services significantly faster by virtually eliminating the need to secure and deploy new network hardware for each service.
 
NFV is considered the next generation of network architecture, with the potential to significantly reduce telecommunications network complexity by replacing incompatible network appliances with standardized software that is easier to configure, upgrade, and operate.
 
Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator reduces deployment time considerably for new network functions, enabling CSPs to improve operational efficiency and service agility.
 
The new solution is also designed to work with Oracle Communications Core Session Manager, a solution that helps CSPs virtualize network infrastructures to support NFV efforts.

Product Details

  • Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator supports NFV architecture standards from the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), the main standards body guiding NFV development. The new solution helps CSPs:
  • Manage the complete lifecycle of a virtual network function, enabling them to more easily orchestrate the complex network environments required by emerging services
  • Respond to changes in network capacity requirements by monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs), such as subscriber connection requests, and automatically deploying virtual network functions to meet network capacity demand
  • In addition, Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator can integrate with multiple virtualization infrastructure managers to support a flexible, multi-cloud environment and help avoid vendor lock-in.
  • Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator is designed to fulfill the role of virtual network function manager in the ETSI architecture.
“As smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices explode in popularity, communications service providers are experiencing increasing pressure to deliver compelling data services while competing with over-the-top providers to remain relevant. Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator enables CSPs to move away from rigid network architectures to a flexible platform that can be easily reconfigured to address any number of current or future services,” said Bhaskar Gorti, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
