Amartus Makes nBrace Inter-Provider Service Automation Available

Amartus, an innovator in network and cloud automation software solutions and expert services, announced general availability of its nBrace™ 2.0 inter-provider service automation software solution for communications service providers, the company said.

The solution enables rapid partnering and on-demand negotiation of inter-provider information and communication technology (ICT) services in near/real-time, offering service providers immediate access to a global ecosystem of automated partner providers using the latest industry standards.

Today´s lengthy, ad-hoc, non-standard inter-provider service negotiation is incompatible with the needs of enterprise customers. Now, more than ever, they need to provide seamless access to their globally distributed workforces and digital resources. Service providers and vendors have joined forces to develop industry standards for automation to address their needs. nBrace is a product of this work.

nBrace™ is initially targeted at network providers to address their lack of automated on-demand negotiation for inter-provider connectivity, a critical underlay required to achieve truly global SD-WAN and multi-cloud ICT services. nBrace has an open, programmable, service- and technology-agnostic design that means it can easily support more complex inter-provider services incorporating cloud and applications as well as emerging technologies and services such as 5G network slicing, edge cloud, and industry vertical services.

It implements the latest MEF LSO Sonata and TM Forum industry standards for inter- and intra-provider services automation and is extensible to support emerging standards such as CBAN inter-provider settlement. Amartus is a member of MEF and TM Forum, and is a part of the CBAN.
