The rising demand for ´as a Service´ solutions

Software as a Service has been around for ages, but has recently found to be a focus for telecom operators globally. Several reasons have contributed to a rise in demand for ‘as a Service’ delivery. There has been an increase in general adoption of enterprise SaaS models, with more and more critical infrastructure being involved.

Linking network behavior with customer behavior via analytics

These days, network performance alone is no longer sufficient to distinguish a service provider from the competition and ensure customer loyalty. Now we have come to rely on the Net Promoter Score (NPS), which uses surveys to benchmark the overall performance of the operator at discrete points in time. But is that sufficient?

5G accelerates network management challenges

5G is the flavor of the day and presented as the panacea of all network latency and growth problems. But without trying to describe how 5G addresses those, what does it really mean from a network management perspective and more specifically, where does Network Management as a Service (NMaaS) have a part to play? In other words, how do we ensure that the 5G opportunities get realized while avoiding a network management nightmare?

Gartner names Ericsson as OSS leader

How Network Management as a Service is a game-changing proposition

In general, the mobile operator marketplace is maturing. This maturation drives a number of changes, impacting growth, revenue and margins. At the same time, networks are becoming more complex and, by default, more expensive to manage. Finding a balance between meeting the demands of the subscriber and effectively managing the cost of implementing and maintaining the network requires new deployment and operational models for operators.

Digital transformation in the telecom industry

Thanks to digital transformation, networks are becoming increasingly complex, as are the services delivered by them. Subscribers expect a network that scales to their needs, offers innovative digital services and is highly engaging. To meet this challenge, operators must embark on the journey to be a fully digital telco.

Evolving OSS—open, intelligent, and model driven

The simplicity required to deploy and manage services in future network and infrastructure operations is driving the need to rethink traditional operations support systems (OSS). The long-standing paradigm of bundling vendor and domain-specific management with network functions has been challenged. In recent years, a new approach has emerged that is built on the concept of an open and model-driven platform.
