Orange has deployed Cisco's Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) software platform to facilitate network automation. 

As service providers prepare for the next wave of network speed, extensive architectural transformation involving programmability and automation will be needed to support these capabilities and future innovations, including the evolution of enterprise services, 5G, and IoT.

As a key technology enabler, Cisco NSO will help Orange to provide a highly efficient abstraction layer between network services and the underlying infrastructure components, even in complex, heterogeneous environments.

It also reduces service activation times from days to hours and dramatically increasing TTM for critical service offerings, claims Cisco.  The suite helps automating its service lifecycles and reducing manual configuration steps by as much as 90 percent across the spectrum of mobile and enterprise networks, including zero-touch provisioning of network devices.

Christian Gacon, VP, Wireline Networks and Infrastructure, Orange
Cisco’s model-driven approach to network automation and service orchestration is enabling Orange to drastically speed delivery of services across our entire lifecycles. Global deployment of Cisco NSO also provides uniform configuration management tools and consumable network APIs for business applications and customer self-service portals.

Yves Padrines, VP, Global Service Provider EMEAR, Cisco 
Cisco’s network automation software and product portfolio enables carriers to simplify their operations through sophisticated data analysis and proactive control, helping them to continue delivering superior customer experiences without interruption.
