The GSMA Mobile Economy Europe Report 2018: Industry challenges and how MYCOM OSI provides the tools to survive & thrive

Posted by Andrew Baldock on Dec 17, 2018 5:31:33 PM

The annual GSMA Mobile Economy Europe paints a mixed picture for CSPs, with continuing consolidation helping to stabilize the competitive landscape, but saturation in B2C pointing to slow growth in traditional revenue streams. The silver lining however, is a faster than expected adoption of 5G and a determined march into new verticals, showing many green shoots of growth.

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.

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 network monetization and digital service assurance

Posted by Mounir Ladki, President and CTO, MYCOM OSI on Dec 5, 2016 5:00:00 PM

Digitization of businesses and virtualization of networks promise business benefits but are also introducing new challenges for the communications service providers.

Ongoing exponential increase in data consumption by subscribers, especially of video applications and OTT, has taken a toll on the capacity of mobile networks, forcing CSPs to carry out continuous expensive capacity upgrades. In this context, IoT will only exacerbate the problem by adding another layer of traffic to the existing CSP networks.

Through customer-centric analytics, which offer insights into customer behavior, trends and predictions, a new approach to the resolution of capacity problems can be introduced. Carrier-grade business analytics with automation capabilities can solve critical capacity bottlenecks. Using such analytics (real-time and non-real-time), CSPs can trigger automatic processes for proactive or prescriptive actions to solve capacity issues.

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.
