Leverage cloud native intent-based automation using Kubernetes with Gitops
Automate cloud infrastructure and network functions with zero-touch provisioning
Utilize Aarna Nephio Support 1. 0 (ANS) 8x5 or 24x7 support to deploy upstream Nephio modules
Nephio is a Linux Foundation project seeded by Google with the goal of delivering carrier-grade, simple, open, Kubernetes-based cloud native intent automation and common automation templates. These simplify the deployment and management of multi-vendor cloud infrastructure and network functions across large scale edge deployments.
Aarna Networks is a leading participant and contributor to Nephio and is leveraging this powerful tool for orchestrating edge computing in multi-vendor environments — including infrastructure, 5G, network services, and edge computing applications.
The first release, Nephio R1, is now available. It includes a framework to orchestrate CNFs, infrastructure, and cross-domain lifecycle management; along with core Nephio principles and Kubernetes integration using custom definitions (CRDs); and an enhanced user experience and sandbox environment.
At Aarna, we believe Nephio R1 introduces features to empower telecoms and enterprises to efficiently configure and manage cloud infrastructure and network functions using Kubernetes-based intent automation.
Aarna Networks is leveraging our deep experience with Nephio to offer a commercial support package for upstream Nephio R1 – Aarna Nephio Support 1.0 (ANS). ANS makes it easy to get started with a comprehensive support to help you deploy, configure, and manage Nephio.
We also believe that Nephio is perfect for the Open RAN networks and the O-RAN SMO as Nephio can manage O1 (Configuration Management), O2 FOCOM (Federated O-Cloud Orchestration and Management), and O2 NFO (Network Function Orchestration). To see our Aarna’s leadership in this area, please see this recent presentation to the Linux Foundation Networking community.
