Amdocs recently announced its implementation of Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
This new development enables operators to deliver virtual network services running on Azure, orchestrated and managed using ONAP.
Amdocs said it is working with Microsoft to make the ONAP code available to the open source community in May 2018. Network operators will then be able to offer network services running on Azure as the primary cloud or as complementary capacity for their private cloud to deploy virtual network functions that are managed and orchestrated by ONAP.
Anthony Goonetilleke, Group President of Amdocs Technology
This project is a first step in the evolution of ONAP to manage a multi-cloud environment where network capacity can be consumed in a dynamic way across a combination of private and public clouds.
Yousef Khalidi, Corporate VP, Azure Netwworking, Microsoft
...Amdocs and Microsoft are using ONAP to control network services on Microsoft Azure — an integrated solution that helps network operators deliver advanced virtual network functionality, while simply and reliably automating operations and reducing costs using open source technology and cloud based-services.
