Blue Planet launches multi-cloud native OSS platform

April 9, 2024
The platform promises to help communication service providers be adaptable, open, and agile.

The Ciena division Blue Planet announced on April 9 that it has launched the Blue Planet Cloud Native Platform, calling it a major enhancement to the company’s intelligent automation software portfolio.

The new platform reportedly supports multiple modular Operating Support System (OSS) applications by leveraging Kubernetes (K8s) technology-based architecture, allowing communications service providers (CSPs) to automate and simplify their OSS environments.

Joe Cumello, Blue Planet senior vice president and general manager, said in a press release, “The Blue Planet Cloud Native Platform transcends the traditional approach of custom ‘spaghetti integrations’ that have shackled CSPs’ ability to be adaptable, open, and agile. We are pioneering a new level of convergence that embraces the cloud and transforms the OSS to be a competitive differentiator, reducing operational costs and allowing for rapid creation of new business models.”

Blue Planet reports that the new platform increases operational efficiency and streamlines service lifestyle automation by bringing inventory, orchestration, and assurance applications together on one platform. Other new features include in-service software upgrades (ISSU), continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and AI-driven operations.
