Abstract:

This white paper introduces the new Dev-for-Operations model which is being developed in the context of the H2020 Next Generation Platform-as-a-Service (NGPaaS) project [1], exploring its main features and potential benefits for network operators. This Dev-for-Operations model is based on the well-known DevOps [2] philosophy that, as known, advocates to break down the barrier between the software development and the operations teams; Dev-for-Operations extends this to fulfil the specific requirements of the future 5G network operators where the interaction of independent parties (software vendors, verticals and the network operator itself) in the software development and operation processes will be the common practice.
