Aarna Networks

5G and edge computing are a once in a generation disruption that will transform every facet of the telecommunications industry. Unlike previous generations, 5G/edge will be software driven using technologies such as NFV, SDN and cloud with open source software playing a significant role. Aarna Networks is addressing the management, orchestration and automation problem by providing products and services around the open source Linux Foundation Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) project.

ONAP has tremendous momentum and enjoys active participation by organizations such as AT&T, China Mobile, Verizon, Vodafone, Orange, Bell Canada, Reliance, China Telecom, Turk Telecom and others. These CSPs represent over 60% of world-wide mobile subscribers. Initially used by CSPs, ONAP will be used by enterprises over time for edge computing workloads and enterprise 5G applications.

Our specific ONAP offerings are:
