Whether you are from a network operator or vendor in the networking ecosystem, participation in Anuket enables faster, more robust onboarding of network functions into production, reducing costs and accelerating telecom digital transformation.

Network Operators

Development, testing, verification, and deployment of network functions and services is complicated. Telecom operators benefit from participation in Anuket by not having to maintain multiple infrastructure platforms. This results in reduced capital expenses, faster buildout intervals, more efficient operations, and simpler vendor relations and RFP processes.

Common service provider requirements for both infrastructure and network functions reduces the number of individual clouds and the time to onboard individual functions. Anuket also creates more potential for driving NetDevOps automation, improved service delivery, and reduces the need for testing of compliant infrastructure for field deployments.

Infrastructure Vendors

Creating infrastructure that meets requirements submitted directly from network operators means reduced development costs, simplified testing, and streamlined sales cycles with both operators and network function vendors. Anuket allows participants to differentiate on value added features that customers want rather than supporting proprietary platforms.

By creating conformant versions of infrastructure products, vendors can assure customers that their network functions will deploy and run reliably while minimizing the level of customized support needed for each application. Less complexity means more efficient operational support and eliminates the overhead required to support multiple platforms and multiple custom solutions for customers. 

Network Function Vendors

By developing network functions — whether VNFs or CNFs —  applications, and tools to run on conformant infrastructure that meets requirements submitted directly from network operators, vendors benefit from reduced development costs, faster testing intervals and streamlined sales cycles. Anuket allows participants to differentiate on value added features that customers want rather than supporting proprietary platforms.

By utilizing conformant infrastructure for network functions, vendors can ensure customers that network functions will deploy and run reliably while reducing development cost and customization requirements. Fewer platforms to support in the field means more efficient operational support and better customer service.
