5G and what it means for service assurance

Posted by Mounir Ladki, President and CTO, MYCOM OSI on May 31, 2019 5:41:00 PM

5G; first there was a vision, then there was hype, then there were promises.  Finally, it’s here (or at the very least coming soon to a network near you).  Even in the UK, a market that was in danger of lagging behind on its 4G launches, we’re seeing EE switch on its 5G services in six UK cities this week, with Vodafone UK hot on its heels with a July launch.

So now it’s real, it’s timely to ask what will these new 5G services be? What will they deliver? And crucially how we can be sure that the promised answers to those first two questions are being delivered against?

These questions will among those posed to CSPs at the upcoming Telecom Assurance Cloud Summit (London: 11 June).

Kill the RFP? Yes please! Agile procurement can save billions and accelerate innovation

Posted by Payam Taaghol, CEO at MYCOM OSI on May 28, 2019 3:40:56 PM

We have contributed to the most recent TM Forum research report “Time to Kill the RFP?”, looking at how the telecoms industry approaches procurement and how the process can be improved to save time, money and effort for all involved – CSPs and vendors alike.

Yes that’s right, a report into procurement processes – I can almost hear the collective groan.

But this is important. It’s costing the industry billions and erecting roadblocks to innovation that are actively harming the ability of CSPs to compete in the digital economy – and will be a key agenda item at the upcoming Telecom Assurance Cloud Summit (11 June 2019).

Time to Kill the RFP? Reinventing IT Procurement for the 2020s’ suggests that the telecom industry’s traditional Request for Proposal (RFP) process, which dates back to the 1980s, is broken – and that bad procurement is costing the industry over $1 billion annually.

How to monetise the 5G experience

Posted by Payam Taaghol, CEO at MYCOM OSI on May 13, 2019 7:41:12 AM

As 5G rollouts begin in earnest, significant questions remain as to how the business model will stack-up for next generation networks. It’s actually a little shocking that despite investing billions in spectrum and billions more in network buildout, this is still even a question. 

We know 5G will bring increased speed and decreased latency. But so what? Will this alone be enough to recoup the investment?

Telco Cloud - The 4 immutable laws

Posted by Mounir Ladki, President and CTO, MYCOM OSI on May 9, 2019 9:10:42 AM

A strategic digital transformation and migration of infrastructure to the cloud can cut a CSP’s IT costs by up to 31 percent. This isn’t a number I’ve made up. This is the judgement of Three UK’s director of IT transformation, speaking at their media and analyst event last week.

Cloud Dynamics Underpin MYCOM OSI's Acquisition

Posted by Ian Meakin on Dec 20, 2018 10:16:13 AM

Article written by Ray Le Maistre, Editor in Chief - Light Reading, and published on Light Reading on 30/11/2018

There's a good chance that the acquisition of telecom network assurance and optimization specialist MYCOM OSI by private equity firm Inflexion, announced Wednesday, might have escaped the attention of many in the industry. (See MYCOM OSI Acquired by Inflexion .)

But it's worth noting for a couple of reasons.

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.

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.

Digitalization of telco business and the role of service assurance

Posted by Mounir Ladki, President and CTO, MYCOM OSI on May 3, 2017 10:30:00 AM

CSPs need to simplify and rationalize their service assurance systems across all networks: mobile and fixed, enterprise and IT/data center, so that they can be maintained at peak performance and maximize the utilization of the network resources. As a consequence of evolving digitalization, there is a great need to build operation centers that are predictive, customer-centric, analytics-driven and highly automated to help CSPs achieve speed and massive opex savings.

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.
