QoS challenges in the NFV/5G networks

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Jun 28, 2017 11:00:00 AM

NFV-core based 5G networks have already caught the fancy of the Telco Cloud service provider. The reasons for this are its promise of high QoS.

High speed/throughput, high reliability, low latency, high capacity, high availability, high connectivity and dynamic bandwidth allocation are the key QoS benefits that Telco Cloud service providers can expect from the 5G Cloud RAN and the NFV core networks.

Supporting IoT services on 5G network slices through Service Quality Management

Posted by Sandeep Raina on May 12, 2017 10:00:00 AM

High speed, high reliability and low latency are the key benefits that CSPs expect from 5G. While high speed (targeted at 20 Gbps) helps to upload and download video-based content faster and in larger volumes, high reliability (always 100%) supports mission-critical services especially in the IoT world. Low latency (sub millisecond) cuts down the time to deliver mission-critical applications. Never before has Service Quality Management (SQM) in mobile networks been as important as now.

Service management for the Telco Cloud

Posted by Sandeep Raina on May 8, 2017 9:00:00 AM

There is a resurgence in the use of Service Quality Management (SQM) for digital service operations. The reasons for SQM’s growing importance are the introduction of Internet of Things (IoT), which gained significant momentum in 2016, and the anticipated rollout of NFV-based services in 2017. Both reasons expect the current functionality of an SQM system to be extended to cover the high speed and scale demands of a digital service environment.

Digital OSS for the Digital World

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Mar 28, 2017 12:39:11 PM

Digital businesses and digital networks are all about high speed communication, dynamic network orchestration and on-demand services. Without an overhaul of current Operation Support Systems (OSS), service providers will be up against big operational challenges to realize their digital business objectives.

Connectivity Assurance for the IoT Service Provider

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Mar 15, 2017 9:30:00 AM

The success of IoT is dependent on two key elements of the IoT ecosystem: performance of the things (sensored devices) and performance of the networks that connect them. The latter offers a greater risk to the Service Provider, as the devices often are required to have very reliable and high quality connectivity to support the services offered to some high-revenue industry verticals.

Simplify Operations for the Telco Cloud

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Feb 28, 2017 8:55:39 AM

As CSPs undergo digital transformation - which means offering digital services through a Telco Cloud environment – they face a whole set of operational challenges, including operating a new virtualized network, focusing on customer experience more than before and providing high reliability and availability for upcoming IoT services. Simplifying the operations can help in tackling these challenges.

Service Quality in Virtualized Networks

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Feb 23, 2017 8:30:00 AM

For a digital service provider, virtualization promises the creation and deployment of new services in shorter time periods, down from a few months to a few days. NFV technology offers the required agility in creation, modification and retiring of services. However, to assure the QoS of NFV-based services, the role of an enhanced Service Quality Management (SQM) system is key.

Assuring the Telco Cloud

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Feb 21, 2017 4:00:00 PM

As CSPs undergo digital transformation - which means running their business out of a cloud, selling digital services and operating like web-scale internet companies - assuring the Telco Cloud business will take high priority. With networks virtualizing, services digitalizing and IoT looming large, the business risks are much higher than envisaged. Assurance of the Telco Cloud network and services will be key in assuring the new Telco Cloud business.

Intelligence for the Telco Cloud

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Feb 13, 2017 10:00:00 AM

The Telco Cloud, defined as virtualized infrastructure to run digital services and agile operations, has not only paved the way for digitalization of CSP businesses, but also opened up new avenues for data monetization.

Through 2017, CSPs will continue to make investments in analytics to drive focused investments in network and services, manage customer experience better and personalize services. To support this, data monetization solutions that offer customer intelligence out of a Telco Cloud and how it can be monetized will be critical and much in demand.

Leveraging OSS for business benefits in digital networks

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Nov 25, 2016 12:00:00 PM

With transformation and incremental evolution of current OSS systems, the CSP’s digital business can realize digital business benefits faster

It is well acknowledged that digitization of services and networks reduces capex as well as overall cost of operation and allows launching services that are tuned to the customer needs. The future digital network, a multi-layer composite of NFV/SDN, IoT and 5G, will be technically equipped to meet the digital service demands of customers over the next 10 years. In this period, in order to make the digital business successful, OSS will play an instrumental role in supporting the required dynamicity, speed and scale of the digital networks and services.
