MYCOM OSI: Ringing the changes in OSS

2018 is proving a busy year for MYCOM OSI, as the global CSP community wakes up to the instrumental role cloud-based service quality assurance can play in realising autonomic networks.

The more ambitious CSPs’ plans, the more critical it is that they can support the QoE with a light and eventually no operational touch – tracking everything in one place, and leaning on the latest technology to enable predictive analytics, automation and self-learning.

In this exclusive interview with Mobile Europe and European Communications, Payam Taaghol, MYCOM OSI’s CEO, sets out his vision and describes the transformations his company has already made possible.

5G networks move from the lab into the real world

Posted by Neil McKinlay on Jun 8, 2018 10:56:02 AM

5G networks are taking their first steps out of trials and labs into reality with innovative use cases demonstrated during the winter Olympics in South Korea early in 2018. Now the “how” of deploying dynamic, self-orchestrating networks has been explored and successfully demonstrated in recent TM Forum proof of concept Catalysts focused around providing new service provision and connectivity for the Tour de France cycle race, to demonstrate the real world benefits and value of 5G and new technologies available.

Three UK's Core Network Transformation Requires New Approach to Assurance

Posted by Ian Meakin on Dec 18, 2017 2:15:00 PM

Blog written by James Crawshaw, Senior Analyst - OSS/BSS Transformation, Heavy Reading, and published on Light Reading on 14/12/2017 

Back in 2014 the regulatory winds were favorable in European telecoms with consolidation in both the German and Austrian markets taking the number of mobile network operators from four to three. "Market repair" was the buzzword of the day and operators were keen to see if they could achieve similar consolidation in other countries. In the UK, there were four MNOs: EE (itself a merger of Orange and T-Mobile's UK arms), O2 (part of the Telefonica Group, Vodafone and Three UK (part of Asian conglomerate CK Hutchison). With EE being snapped up by BT, Three made an audacious offer for O2 that would have created the largest mobile operator in the UK with over 40% share of mobile subscribers and a strong portfolio of spectrum. However, after a year of deliberations, in May 2016 the deal was blocked by the EU commission on competition grounds, leaving Three UK in a quandary.

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.

Developing a blueprint for zero touch, end-to-end service orchestration across hybrid and multiple networks

Posted by Mounir Ladki, President and CTO, MYCOM OSI on Apr 12, 2017 9:30:00 AM

The telecom industry is witnessing the start of a profound transformation process that will allow Communication Service Providers to evolve into Digital Service Providers. The promise is to utilize new cloud, software, IoT and big data technologies to provide intelligent connectivity and value added digital services to consumers, enterprises and various industry segments. This includes the connectivity and management of smart factories (Industry 4.0), smart connected vehicles (autonomous driving), smart grid networks or SD-WAN networks for enterprises. This also includes digital services to consumers, such as connected homes, virtual-reality gaming and rich high-definition multi-media entertainment catalogues.

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.
