Lean Operations

Experience lean operations

See firsthand how network functions virtualization (NFV) can help you deliver unmatched service experiences and achieve effortless operations. Experience our lean operations demonstration and discover how you can use automation and virtualization to realize the promise of the telco cloud.

Lean operations brings the benefits of software-defined networking (SDN), NFV, and dynamic service orchestration to network operations and maintenance. Through lean operations, you can automate network function deployment and lifecycle management processes on a large scale. You can use this automation to launch and operate new digital services with minimal incremental cost.

A shift to lean operations gives you access to tools and insights that can help you succeed in an increasingly sophisticated and virtualized world. By going lean, you can:

  • Scale your network to support innovations such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G
  • Differentiate your applications and services
  • Compete effectively against global over-the-top (OTT) players
  • Troubleshoot complex problems with ease

Achieving operations excellence with lean NFV ops

Our live and interactive demo offers a full realization of what NFV can do. Book a session with us and learn how we can help you achieve lean operations.



What we’re demonstrating: A complete NFV solution

Our interactive demonstration showcases a fully virtualized, end-to-end solution for operations management. Running live over 100 virtual machines, it presents:

  • A virtualization catalog that supports rapid service instantiation
  • A holistic approach to lifecycle management and reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) tests
  • Advanced service function chaining
  • Integration with operations support systems (OSS), NFV management and orchestration (MANO) platforms, and SDN

What’s in the demo: Products, solutions, and services

Our demonstration is a modular and scalable cloud system that aligns fully with ETSI NFV specifications. It uses products and solutions from Nokia and third-party vendors to virtualize the mobile core and the IP Multimedia Subsystem. The demonstration includes:

  • Applications provided through our IMS software, virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), and CloudBand™ Ecosystem partners
  • Platforms such as CloudBand, Enhanced OSS portfolio, AirFrame, Nuage Networks™ Virtualized Services Platform, and our Network Services Platform
  • Infrastructure provided by Nokia AirFrame and CloudBand portfolio (CloudBand Infrastructure Software, CloudBand Application Manager, CloudBand Network Director)

Our demonstration also draws on expertise and innovations provided by Bell Labs Consulting and our Professional Services practice
