With clear benefits such as a more elastic network and increased business agility to be gained from taking advantage of network functions virtualization (NFV), Bell is driving its network transformation by leveraging the ONAP-based network service orchestration (NSO) platform to introduce new services faster to its enterprise and consumer customers. This includes automating its data center tenant network provisioning on ONAP to automate the operations of its data centers. Bell is focused on providing its operations teams with tools to automate life cycle management of both physical and virtual network functions, incident management and service assurance.
Bell’s Network 3.0 transformation initiative includes technology, process and people, with a strong emphasis on advancing its DevOps journey. This involves building the team and talent to support a cross-organizational DevOps model and creating a culture of Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD). A tangible outcome of this approach is Bell’s development of software that serves as the foundation for ONAP Operations Manager (OOM), which helps simplify deployments, reduce footprint and enable continuous delivery. The software has been contributed to the open source ONAP community to help others embrace ONAP.
