Ericsson on Tuesday unveiled its Dynamic Orchestration solution, which is designed to accelerate service deployment across physical and virtual network infrastructure.

"The opportunities offered by virtualisation are significant, but due to the complexity, many operators are taking an incremental step-by-step approach to get there," said Ulf Ewaldsson, head of business area digital services at Ericsson, in a statement.

Dynamic Orchestration is a combination of software and professional services that automates the creation, delivery and assurance of new digital services, such as software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), enterprise and mobile virtual private networks, and 5G network slicing, among others.

According to Ericsson, it manages existing technologies while integrating the latest and greatest in virtualised infrastructure, helping telcos to rapidly deploy new services.

"Ericsson Dynamic Orchestration enables our customers to excel at traditional services delivery while simultaneously incorporating virtualisation capabilities to embrace emerging market and business opportunities driven by 5G and IoT," Ewaldsson said.
