Network automation was the topic of the show at MEF17. Ciena’s Abel Tong details two proof-of-concept demos at the show where Ciena Blue Planet teamed with other industry leaders to automate services across the network.
The topic of microservices architectures for application development is getting a lot of attention. Abel Tong from Ciena's Blue Planet team highlights some of the myths that have emerged around network operator adoption.
Operators are turning to big data tools and analytics to analyze the vast amounts of information they’re accumulating in data lakes. Here are seven steps to get there, and how Ciena's new Blue Planet Analytics can help.
In the move to SDN and NFV architectures, model-driven templating plays a pivotal role in helping develop and deliver new services more quickly, says Abel Tong of Ciena's Blue Planet division.
We all understand the promise of SDN and NFV and its ability to unlock agility, flexibility and speed for the network
I was recently with a group of colleagues discussing network automation for an upcoming webinar, clearly a top-of-mind topic for every telecommunications and service provider around the globe. My colleagues were senior architects and spokespeople
So, here we go again. We in the telecom industry are looking at how to transform our networks with SDN, NFV and orchestration. But now, we’re talking “open source” and the gang’s all jumping on the bandwagon. Pundits are
It can be easy to gloss over how complicated it is to integrate new SDN and NFV functionality into an existing OSS. But this integration is critical, because without a robust integration, network operators will not be able to access the full
Ciena's new Blue Planet architecture leverages a number of information models and orchestration tools – including TOSCA and NetConf/YANG – to enable complete lifecycle management of cloud and NFV applications, and to configure the virtual
