FiberLight Automates Network Operations with Blue Planet

FiberLight has selected automation software from Blue Planet, a division of Ciena.

FiberLight is deploying Blue Planet Inventory (BPI) and Blue Planet Multi-Domain Service Orchestration (MDSO) to automate the rapid turn-up and delivery of the new, on-demand services its customers require.

BPI gives FiberLight a unified, dynamic view of its network and service resources. This reduces the amount of time spent on manual operations and allows for the faster turn-up of services, enabling FiberLight to provide a quote for new services in just a few days.

Together, BPI and MDSO provide FiberLight with accurate network visibility and automated software control to its OSS/BSS operations across multiple network layers, domains, and vendors. This helps to reduce service and order fulfillment errors, boosting customer satisfaction.

FiberLight is also leveraging Blue Planet Professional Services to seamlessly extend software-defined networking (SDN) capabilities throughout its operations, driving faster time to market.
