Telco Cloud

Ready for Telco Cloud Partner Program

VMware actively cooperates with multiple network function vendors including all key NEPs, having them certify in the VMware Ready for Telco Cloud program. This is a comprehensive certification program that ensures interoperability and operational readiness between third-party-developed network functions and the ETSI-compliant VMware Telco Cloud platform. The program helps ensure that CSPs can rapidly onboard and deploy multi-vendor network functions with the VMware Telco Cloud platform. VMware Telco Cloud Automation leverages this program to certify interoperability with network function vendors, offering a neutral and pre-tested end-to-end MANO solution.
