Continuous integration, continuous delivery03. 12. 2022 Saturday / By: Robert Denes / Generic / Exact time: BST / Print this page
In the world of 5G, more and more communication service providers (CSPs) are accelerating the introduction of new innovative services. In order for their networks to keep up with service innovation, traditional waterfall upgrade processes, which involve frequent manual interventions, are not enough.
Faster time-to-market requirements require the adoption of DelOps (Delivery and Operations) and CI/CD (Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery). Together, they accelerate the introduction of new services while reducing the risk of highly complex telecommunications networks.
What is DelOps?
DelOps is Nokia's unique approach to realizing the benefits of DevOps-style, iterative software development and service for the telecommunications environment.
What is CI/CD?
CI/CD is a DelOps technology tool. CI/CD enhanced with continuous testing (CT) ensures that all types of pre-tested software changes can be quickly and safely deployed into production or into the hands of users in a continuous, automated and sustainable manner.
What is NCD?
Nokia Continuous Delivery (NCD) supported by CI/CD services offers the advantages of DelOps CI/CD with a modular solution. It can adapt to various customer and third-party CI/CD processes with advanced test automation capabilities.
Nokia Continuous Delivery (NCD) provides the benefits of CI/CD with an end-to-end pre-integrated solution. It is designed to handle the unique challenges of telecommunications networks and perform software changes in an automated manner. Its future-proof, cloud-native software architecture, using industry-leading components and advanced automated testing features, enables software updates to be performed securely and seamlessly.
