Amdocs on Monday announced the extension of its global business, technology and services collaboration with Microsoft to new strategic domains that will help communication service providers (CSPs) continue to shape the connected society with differentiated, cloud-based services.
Transitioning industry accelerators to the cloud means CSPs can now more rapidly launch innovative offerings to market. Amdocs and Microsoft will collaborate across several domains, including Data and AI, NFV and virtualized networking, IoT (including eSIM) and Media.
Amdocs also announced that SES, a global satellite operator, will be the first to deliver virtual network services, such as SD-WAN, orchestrated and managed using Amdocs NFV Powered by ONAP on Microsoft Azure. This is an additional proof-point of the industry momentum behind ONAP and Amdocs and Microsoft’s continued commitment to innovate and promote open source networking solutions to accelerate the adoption of NFV.
