Telco Cloud

Voice Network Evolution

Service providers are transitioning fixed and mobile networks and network functions to the telco cloud.  This transition will drive new 5G and other telco service revenues, expedite service delivery, and drive automation into their network and services for cost-effective operations.  Cloudification of networks and network functions also helps extend the geographic reach for services and the ability to meet new service performance requirements such as low latency.

Transitioning Networks to Cloud-Native

Transforming service provider mobile and fixed networks to cloud-native architectures and service delivery requires telcos to continue transforming not only their network infrastructure, but also the network functions software used for service delivery and their network operations. This transformation has been going on in multiple stages, starting with migration from physical network functions consisting of proprietary software and hardware, to virtual machines running on hypervisors on COTS appliances to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). This transformation now includes the migration to cloud-native infrastructures and cloud native functions. To attain full web-scale, cloud-based services, requires the implementation of cloud-native functions deployable on private and public clouds and with full automation. Ribbon’s Telco Cloud software helps service providers with all stages of the network transformation journey.

Cloud-Native Operations and Automation

Ribbon Telco Cloud embraces cloud-native Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) practices, both internally for our hosted services offers, and to align with our customer’s adoption of CI/CD and cloud-native processes. Frequent software releases and tightly integrated continuous testing enhances speed to market, reduces deployment issues, and enables rapid problem resolution. Once a product or service is deployed, the customer’s operations and orchestration platforms fit into the CI/CD cycle with continuous monitoring and a feedback loop for planning. Ribbon Automation Framework (RAF) is a set of well-defined tools that are standardized across all Ribbon applications. RAF tools are designed to easily integrate into any automation environment such as CI/CD pipeline, Services Orchestrator or even script execution based on a single command.
