MSM seamlessly integrates with other service orchestration systems (OSS, BSS, cloud brokers, NFV orchestraters, etc.) to deliver the full service life cycle for hyper-distributed cloud infrastructure and applications. MSM provides fully integrated networking for virtual resources, backbone networks and external cloud resources such as public clouds, legacy infrastructure, and containers. By placing workloads at the network or mobile edge, enterprises and service providers can deliver new value added services that reduce latency, eliminate backhaul traffic, improve application performance, and enhance the customer experience.
