Hansen Announces Solutions Alliance with Blue Planet
January 7th, 2021 – Hansen Technologies (ASX: HSN) today announced a solutions partnership with Blue Planet, a division of Ciena, expanding the successful Partner Program for Hansen’s Create-Deliver-Engage Suite for Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
Blue Planet has embedded Hansen technology into its Blue Planet Service Order Management solution, which integrates with other components of the Blue Planet intelligent automation portfolio to deliver catalog-driven zero-touch service order fulfillment that dynamically discovers the network’s service capabilities, automates service activation, and provides complete visibility and control of order workflow.

The Partner Program supports a broad set of business models and routes to market. By embedding Hansen’s technology, partners can create telco-grade solutions underpinned by best-of-breed, catalog-driven software.
David Castree, President & Head of Global Partnerships, Hansen Technologies, commented: “We are pleased to see that Blue Planet is using our proven technology to provide customers with a service order management solution that accelerates service activation and improves customer experience. We are also encouraged by the reception that Blue Planet SOM has already received in the market, most recently with DISH, providing a solution to support the rollout of the United States’ first cloud native, Open RAN-compliant 5G network. Our partnership with Blue Planet is an excellent demonstration of how Hansen effectively works with partners to deliver successful outcomes for all parties concerned.”
Kailem Anderson, Vice President of Portfolio and Engineering, Blue Planet shared: “CSPs today are implementing software at a breakneck speed in order to adapt to rapidly changing requirements from customers.
