“The adoption rate of telco clouds by service providers is highly varied.

Ribbon is delivering a broad set of deployment choices, enabling its customers to evolve at their own pace for each specific network function while gaining increased value,” said Roy Chua, Founder and Principal, AvidThink.
The latest additions to Ribbon’s Telco Cloud offering have been designed to deliver significantly reduced deployment costs and increased resiliency, while leveraging existing tools and employee skill sets for additional efficiencies. With cloud native architecture and design principles at their core, these solutions also position networks for 5G. Finally, Ribbon Automation, a set of cloud native operational processes, helps minimize time to market by integrating into operators’ deployment frameworks to further simplify and streamline operations.
