SES to Deploy Amdocs End-to-end Service Orchestration Capabilities
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced that it has expanded its agreement with SES, the world’s leading global satellite operator, to provide an end-to-end service orchestration solution based on the cloud-native Amdocs Service & Network Automation platform made available earlier this year, which supports all aspects of service design, service inventory and orchestration across hybrid networks. Amdocs will partner with SES to optimize and streamline its current service management and network automation systems to enable a rich set of advanced new cloud-based services that can be deployed, discovered, ordered and scaled on demand.
The expansion of the industry-leading collaboration between Amdocs and SES reflects a growing need for end-to-end service orchestration and digital service lifecycle management for a new generation of video and network services that span many domains, including physical, virtual and cloud network functions, as well as satellite access, radio access, fiber transport and core infrastructure. The new solution will enable SES to manage increased scale and complexity by automating existing service and network operations, while at the same time increasing the capacity to accelerate the launch and delivery of innovative services for broadcasters, content owners, mobile operators, enterprises and industry vertical segments.
“Delivering content and connectivity and value-added-services across the far reaches of the globe is something SES is committed to and excels in,” said Ruy Pinto, CTO of SES. “We have already made great progress in deploying Amdocs’ NFV solution to automate and move our network operations to the public cloud. We now look forward to our xpanded collaboration with Amdocs to streamline and simplify our order and service delivery management processes to ensure we can faster and better serve all video and network customers.”
“SES has led the way for communications service providers to embrace open networking in the public cloud era, leveraging ONAP as a vendor-neutral, open community to support all types of services over any type of network,” said Anthony Goonetilleke, group president of Media, Network and Technology, Amdocs. “We are delighted at the success of our collaboration with SES and we look forward to continuing to work together to bring the new generation of service-aware networks to SES and its customers.”
