CORD's vision is to bring datacenter economics and agility to the Telco Central Office, that cloud providers like Amazon and Google enjoy today. CORD provides a complete POD architecture to host the telco workloads, it is scalable, it is agile. Aricent brings new ideas on service provisioning and service activation based on innovative workload behavior driven approach for zero touch provisioning and operation.  In other words, CORD needs a single-pane-window for rapid service introduction on top of XaaS Operating System (XOS), the model-based control plane of CORD.

Behavior Driven Development (BDD) approach provides natural language interface for zero-touch service introduction into CORD. With BDD, application is specified by describing how its "Behavior" should appear to the end user. Behaviors are “executable-specifications” expressed in plain text human readable-language like English. BDD helps the business and technology teams to collaborate and define their shared understanding of the application behaviors in a domain-independent language, thus making it very easy for rapidly introducing new service in CORD without bothering about the nitty-gritties of the low-level CORD architecture.

BDD along with Artificial Intelligence techniques like NLP (Natural Language Processing) and ML (machine-learning) based predictive-analytics modelling, will play a key role in CORD and provide a master orchestration layer on top of R-CORD, M-CORD, E-CORD & A-CORD for creating a complete zero-touch ecosystem for introduction of new services with speed and agility through a single-pane window.
