Dimetis launches OSS Orchestration platform for communications service providers

Dimetis, a software developer of Operations Support Systems (OSS) and broadcast solutions, has launched the OpsNGN orchestration platform to help Communication Service Providers (CSPs) make the business transformation to virtualization, the company said.

OpsNGN is a carrier-grade, next generation fluid OSS orchestration platform for hybrid networks supporting legacy, Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) domains.

Using a true Dynamic Inventory model, OpsNGN provides CSPs with service and network agility, lifecycle service automation, service assurance, and the power to scale up and out in a multi-vendor environment. OpsNGN fully integrates with existing OSS/BSS systems thus protecting current investments. Assisted by a three-layer orchestration abstraction, namely application, service and network, it can interface with and enhance other orchestrators.

The OpsNGN OSS orchestration platform has incorporated the ETSI MANO model into the OSS to support NFV Orchestration, VNF Managers, EMS/NMS and integration to exposed VNFs. Network Interface support includes NETCONF/YANG, SNMP, Telnet, CORBA, TOSCA & supports CLI communication with the network. Being an agnostic hardware-independent company enables Dimetis to support multi-vendor environments. OpsNGN has already been evaluated in several proof of concepts (PoCs) with global Tier-1 service providers.

Dimetis is a company in managing hybrid networks over the last 25 years with various projects in the telecom and broadcast OSS domains. Dimetis global installed base of customers include such operators as AT&T, A1 Telekom (former Telekom Austria), AboveNet, GlobeCast France, Hibernia (USA & Europe), Telstra Australia, and Telenor Norkring Norway.

Dimetis is a member of the TMF, IETF, ETSI NFV, EBU bodies, which are dedicated to defining functional requirements and standards for the next generation networks and emerging architectures.
