SFR, a subsidiary of the Altice Group, is deploying Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) to enhance the automation, agility and reliability of its network.
The Operator aims to accelerate its network services change management from months to minutes with automated on-demand services provisioning.
With Cisco NSO, SFR is able to simplify the entire lifecycle management for its services, automating core functions across physical and virtualized networks for both existing and new customers. This enables faster innovation and increases customer satisfaction by speeding time-to-market for new managed services like SD-WAN, and Application-driven, on demand services, said Cisco.
A key technology enabler for software-defined and intent-based networking, Cisco NSO will enable SFR to transform their networks and services towards programmability, by empowering SFR teams to manage their network services more efficiently.
It also enables faster delivery of revenue-generating services and shorter activation times from months to minutes and automated service lifecycle and reduction of manual configuration steps by up to 90 percent, claims Cisco.
SFR is planning to replicate these network automation best practices using Cisco NSO to change the way it runs across its Fixed and Mobile networks, to accelerate digitization, that could be extended to other Altice entities.
