NFV platform delivery


This service scope will depend on the specific client
environment and requirements. For example:

• Deploying an NFV platform for greenfield (all new


services) including ONAP and 3rd party components.
• Upgrading or deploying third party assurance systems
for NFV
• Deploying for brownfield where incumbent physical
services are migrated to NFV or hybrid services
• Design and deploy CMS infrastructure ready to

Ecosystem
Amdocs strongly believes in openness and in enabling our customers to benefit from NFV. We have extensive experience
working with a wide range of partners across all levels of the NFV ecosystem. Such experience has proven crucial in the
multi-vendor deployment environment enabled by NFV.

DevOps
Amdocs implementation services should be provided in
a continuous DevOps approach in conjunction with the
implementation and operation domains.

DevOps leverages new technologies, accelerated


automation and innovative methods to integrate short
development and operations cycles in a continuous way
– to deliver value faster.

This approach enables on demand deployments of VNFs/


services, and accelerates the optimization process by
enabling fast and dynamic iterations of each NFV
or service deployment. This, in turn, drives the lead
time for changes down to minutes, and helps to Figure 4. Deployment & implementation in DevOps approach
dramatically reduce failure rates and MTTR during the
operational stage.
