Ericsson launches dynamic orchestration solution

Ericsson has launched its dynamic orchestration solution designed to facilitate the rapid introduction and closed-loop automation of services across physical and virtual networks.

The company says the launch signifies the company's ambition to lead IT transformation services for its customers, with dynamic orchestration providing a flexible and modular solution for the management of existing technologies while virtualisation capabilities are integrated and controlled.

Ulf Ewaldsson, head of business area digital services, Ericsson, says the opportunities offered by virtualisation are significant, “but due to the complexity, many operators are taking an incremental step-by-step approach to get there”.

“Ericsson Dynamic Orchestration enables our customers to excel at traditional services delivery while simultaneously incorporating virtualisation capabilities to embrace emerging market and business opportunities driven by 5G and IoT."

Ewaldsson said operators must be agile to deliver services on a global scale in an era when speed and governance are essential and, stimulated by the advances in IT networking and driven by the migration to 5G and IoT, services are becoming more and more cloud-based.

“In this environment, innovative services are not only delivered to customers on demand, but must be able to respond to surrounding dynamics in real time. Customer provisioning must move from weeks to minutes and service level agreements (SLAs) must be measured and enforced. As operators transform to meet these needs, enabling automated orchestration of available resources at scale is foundational.”

According to Ericsson, zero-touch automation improves customer service provisioning from weeks to minutes and, with support for zero-touch automation, rapid provisioning and policy-driven service assurance, dynamic orchestration helps operators achieve faster time to market and superior delivery of new and differentiated services.
