Samsung, Amdocs to Collaborate to Onboard and Combine VNFs for Open Cloud Networks

Samsung and Amdocs announced multiple joint initiatives to accelerate communications service providers’ (CSP) journeys to open cloud networks.

Amdocs and Samsung Networks will collaborate to onboard and integrate Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) so that CSPs can better take advantage of Samsung’s 5G network solutions with the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), the industry leading open source automation platform. The collaboration will start with Samsung’s Virtualized Central Unit (vCU) function and will expand to cover additional areas through execution of a comprehensive program, including components of the 5G core, to help CSPs realize a full end-to-end 5G cloud network that supports their current and future business requirements.

The two companies will also explore the possibility of delivering relevant network services, such as vRAN rollout and integration, and related Network Function Virtualization (NFV) enablement solutions. Virtualized network functions that are managed by a comprehensive automation and orchestration platform will provide CSPs with a rich set of innovative new services that can be deployed, discovered and scaled on demand, providing new ways to monetize the network.

By teaming with Samsung, Amdocs combines its expertise in enterprise-grade ONAP and software-defined systems with Samsung’s advanced 5G network solutions portfolio to better enable CSPs to launch innovative new services at speed.
