Blue Planet leverages an advanced software architecture and open design to deliver a single comprehensive platform that can be tailored to meet customers’ Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and service orchestration use cases.


This modular and extensible approach enables network operators to automate the lifecycle of differentiated new  services that can be deployed across multi-vendor and multidomain environments, and scaled on demand. The result is a dramatic transformation of not just how services are delivered, but how networks are operated.


Blue Planet serves four primary use cases to meet business and operational requirements:

  • Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO): End-to-end service automation and orchestration across multiple technology (physical or virtual) and vendor domains
  • NFV Orchestration: Vendor-agnostic Virtual Network Function (VNF) instantiation, service chaining, and lifecycle management across one or more data centers
  • Open Network Operating System (ONOS): Commercial-grade open-source SDN controller optimized for data center and central office re-architected as a data center (CORD) network domains
  • SDN Management and Control: Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, Security (FCAPS) management and control of multi-vendor and multi-layer physical network elements
