Red Hat announced that Amdocs has integrated Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform with the Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator to help communications service providers (CSPs) transition from physical networks to cloud service environments.

Amdocs an open source and OpenStack leader chose Red Hat for its Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, which has emerged as the leading cloud platform for NFV that enables faster, open innovation.

The company relies on Red Hat as a stable platform partner offering security features and global support capabilities that can deliver the performance, scalability and deployment requirements of a carrier-grade operation, all of which are fundamental for CSPs as they undertake the transformation of their legacy infrastructure for cloud-based services delivery.

Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator utilizing Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform has been part of several NFV lab trials with tier one telco providers globally, implementing a range of use cases with multiple vendors, including virtual CPE (customer premises equipment), virtual EPC (evolved packet core) and virtual IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem).

Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, OpenStack at Red Hat said, “With OpenStack having become a de facto lingua franca for NFV trials across the globe, we’re excited about broadening our collaboration with Amdocs to meet the needs of CSPs that want to offer cloud-based delivery of virtualized network and business services, while operating more cost-effectively. Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator, built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, offers service providers with choice and the ability to deploy services faster, helping them to remain competitive in this fast-changing market.”
