Best-of-breed, open options and a consultative approach. It’s a powerful combination. And it’s transforming networks. We’re powering connections between people, content, places, and things—from down the street to around the world.
Since its introduction in 2012, OPn has not remained static. It’s a dynamic philosophy that evolves as network needs evolve—delivering the capabilities to meet and enable networks of the future.
OPn works best in an ego-free zone—working with partners, other technology providers, open APIs, and more—to make networks the best that they can be.
Programmability is powerful. And when combined with openness, it’s unstoppable. Customize your network’s capabilities, and do it yourself with our DevOps tools. It’s your choice.
