Itential for TM Forum
As organizations have been looking to expand their orchestration efforts to manage complex, multi-domain services, they have concluded that their traditional OSS lacks the agility and flexibility required for end-to-end, cross-domain services.
The Itential Automation Platform, with its powerful integration engine, dynamic federation capabilities, and flexible northbound exposure options, has emerged as an alternative to the bloated, inflexible OSS stacks.
By leveraging Itential’s northbound exposure flexibility, teams have the option to expose Itential-orchestrated services through whichever interfaces they need, including TMF interfaces, like TMF641 and 640, or through the Itential ServiceNow native applications.
TM Forum Catalyst Project
Dynamic Edge Enabled Applications
Itential participated in a TM Forum Catalyst Project, “Dynamic Edge Enabled Applications” that was showcased at the TM Forum Digital Transformation World Series. The project was comprised of an ecosystem of great vendors and partners including DGIT Systems, Cisco, Deloitte, and Vodafone, all focused on re-imagining and proving an automated, dynamic architecture for end-to-end service activation.

Why Communications Service Providers Trust Itential to Orchestrate & Automate their Critical Infrastructure
We originally chose Itential to help accelerate our network automation efforts because of Itential’s intuitive user-interfaces and out-of-the-box integrations with our DevOps tools. Once we saw the power and speed that we were able to obtain with Itential we started expanding it to work with our other controllers and orchestration deployments as well. The Itential solution allowed us to combine what we were doing with Ansible, Cisco and soon an SD-WAN provider, into a single, cohesive network automation strategy.
