Blue Planet embeds Hansen technology
January 20, 2021
Hansen Technologies has announced a solutions partnership with Blue Planet, a division of Ciena, expanding the successful Partner Program for Hansen’s Create-Deliver-Engage Suite for Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
Blue Planet has embedded Hansen technology into its Blue Planet Service Order Management solution, which integrates with other components of the Blue Planet intelligent automation portfolio to deliver catalog-driven zero-touch service order fulfillment that dynamically discovers the network’s service capabilities, automates service activation, and provides complete visibility and control of order workflow.
In addition to direct sales of its Create-Deliver-Engage Suite for CSPs, Hansen works with partners to offer integrated solutions with extended functionality to meet broad market requirements. The Partner Program supports a broad set of business models and routes to market. By embedding Hansen’s technology, partners can create telco-grade solutions underpinned by best-of-breed, catalog-driven software.
David Castree, President & Head of Global Partnerships, Hansen Technologies, said: “We are also encouraged by the reception that Blue Planet SOM has already received in the market, most recently with DISH, providing a solution to support the rollout of the United States’ first cloud native, Open RAN-compliant 5G network. ”
Kailem Anderson, Vice President of Portfolio and Engineering, Blue Planet, added: “CSPs today are implementing software at a breakneck speed in order to adapt to rapidly changing requirements from customers. With Hansen Technologies, as part of our Service Order Management product suite, we deliver intelligent automation to accelerate a faster rollout of 5G, edge computing and many other exciting digital experiences today.”
