Getting ready for IoT monitoring

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Nov 18, 2016 4:00:00 PM

Getting ready for IoT monitoringIoT devices, networks and services need extensive monitoring. Hundreds of thousands of devices are being added daily to the IoT ecosystem, connected to each other and the cloud through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular and fixed networks. New communication networks based on EC-GSM, LoRa, LTE-M, NB-IoT and SigFox are being considered by IoT service providers to deliver their services. While the IoT service providers could potentially operate separately from Communication Service Providers (CSP), IoT networks are currently being overlaid on existing communication networks and therefore require the CSP’s support in managing the inter-device communication and in maintaining its quality.

Readying OSS for NFV

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Nov 11, 2016 10:56:53 AM

The introduction of NFV in legacy telecom networks will bring about disruptive changes, which will have an immense impact on network, service and customer experience

OSS systems are expected to fulfil many business objectives of virtualized telecommunication networks. One of the most spoken benefits of OSS for NFV is driving operational efficiency by over 50% through continuous closed loop self-healing, scaling up and down of resources and allowing introduction of new services to the market much faster than ever before.

Overcoming OSS barriers for future digital networks

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Oct 4, 2016 3:00:00 PM

Current Operation Support Systems need to quickly transform and evolve so that they can support and enable the future digital networks.

The future digital networks will be associated with high-volume, high-speed data transfers, on-demand services based on customer preference and dynamic orchestration of the resources. These networks will be a multi-layer composite of NFV/SDN, IoT and 5G, and will continue to meet the demands of customers over the next 8-10 years. To make digital business successful, OSS will need to quickly evolve and start supporting the expected dynamicity, speed and scale of the future digital networks. To achieve this, new OSS technologies and functionalities will be incorporated into the current OSS systems in incremental steps.

Challenges in building OSS for future digital networks

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Sep 16, 2016 2:00:00 PM

Future digital networks will be associated with high speed communication, on-demand services and dynamic network orchestration. Current Operation Support Systems (OSS) will struggle in the future digital ecosystem.

The future digital networks are being designed to make digital business a success for the communication service providers and to offer competitive, advanced digital services to their customers. The networks of the future will be predominantly cloud based (virtualized), managing higher volumes of data at higher speeds and ensuring reliable connections between sensored devices. This means that new management techniques have to be incorporated for managing the networks, so that they deliver the expected dynamicity, speed and scale. This will require build-up of the capabilities of the underlying Operation Support System, especially reliability and real-time orchestration.

How to unjumble OSS

Posted by Sandeep Raina on Sep 16, 2015 10:04:00 AM

Banner_blog_5Consolidation is not a buzz word. It is a biz word. This is because network consolidation in a telecom operator network cuts down costs (operational costs and infrastructure costs). Consolidation of OSS systems also reduces the operator costs tremendously. If you add automation to it, the results are remarkable. Not only does efficiency increase, but also the quality and speed. This is because you remove elements of human error, inefficient repetition, and decrease time for delivery of new services.
