Spark Embarks on Telco Cloud Automation Journey with ONAP

As Spark New Zealand Limited (Spark) approached 5G deployment, they started analyzing the status of automation across network and infrastructure and realized they needed an automation suite that would support future use cases 5G could enable, such as network slicing, and closed loop automation. They also determined that their orchestration and automation layer did not support Network Service Deployment and application lifecycles management of network functions. Significantly, they saw that their IT automation and network infrastructure automation were siloed from each other.
Spark then asked Infosys to help them implement ONAP, an open source platform for orchestration, management, and automation for their core network. It took Spark a relatively short six months to go from kickoff to implementation of ONAP for those three use cases.
