The agile CSP-vendor relationship: why it holds the key to digital transformation

Posted by Ian Meakin on Mar 5, 2020 2:25:31 PM

Digital transformation – it can mean so much that it can be rendered meaningless. Is it about delivering new digital services? Platform economy ecosystems? Is it about embracing the cloud and becoming ‘cloud native’? Does it mean transforming the operations of the business? Well, yes, it can mean all those things.

How to accelerate 5G roll-out

Posted by Andrew Baldock on Feb 10, 2020 5:33:58 PM

From launching the first city-wide 5G network to creating network slices to monetize new enterprise services, the roll-out of 5G is about more than base stations and devices. It’s not enough to just ‘deploy 5G’, there is a whole roll-out lifecycle. However, while the race to 5G is global, no two CSPs are alike. Each market and every CSP is at a different point in their 5G lifecycle.

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.

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.

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.
