The Cloud Automation Tier deploys the network core and edge sites with multi-layer automation, from the physical infrastructure to cloud native network services. It onboards and orchestrates NFV workloads seamlessly from VM and container-based infrastructures for adaptive service delivery through pre-built integrations with multiple Virtual Infrastructure Managers (VIM) and Kubernetes.

VMware Telco Cloud Automation (TCA) applies a cloud-first, vendor-neutral approach to telco network orchestration and automation. It eases interoperability and simplifies the transition of telco requirements to a rapidly evolving multi-cloud ecosystem.
