Real-time OSS – SDN/NFV Orchestration

Real-time OSS – SDN/NFV Orchestration: OSS System for SDN/NFV Network Orchestration in Telecoms

If providing innovative services and a seamless digital experience give your company its competitive edge, don’t let rising operational costs or network limitations impede your ability to shine among CSPs and OTT players.

After years of extensive proofs of concepts in the area of SDN/NFV in relation to telecommunication networks, now is the time to address real needs and benefits arising from software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV).

Adoption of engineering processes to support domain controllers allows further automation of fulfillment and assurance processes, and thus significant cost reductions for operations.

The ability to manage and orchestrate virtual and physical network functions in one system reduces the complexity of adopting new technology and enables support for innovative telecom service offers for customers.

The Comarch OSS Products & Solutions provides a consistent platform that can be used for the provisioning and management of services over VNFs, PNFs and SDN-controlled telecom networks. Acting as “controller of controllers” Comarch real-time OSS provides comprehensive end to end orchestration of complex multi-domain topologies.

Benefits of implementing a system for SDN/NFV network orchestration - Comarch Real-time OSS - SDN/NFV Orchestration:

Introduce Closed-loop Hybrid Network Management

Choose a single tool for the management and orchestration of your virtual and physical network functions to facilitate the adoption of new technologies so you can innovate in service creation. The support provided by Comarch OSS for both PNFs and VNFs serves as the foundation of network slicing.

Perform service assurance for hybrid networks

Fault Management, Performance Management and Service Quality Management modules monitor both virtual and physical network functions, triggering VNF healing and scaling to optimize the customer experience at peak network traffic hours.

Stay compliant with industry standards

The system architecture is based on the TM Forum SID model (CFS-RFS-R). VNF onboarding is realized through ETSI-compliant descriptors.

Automate fulfillment and assurance processes

Utilize framework integration between service and resource inventory to move towards zero-touch assurance.

Enjoy a vast array of possible integrations

Comarch OSS products are integrated with OpenStack and Open Source SDN controllers, as well as with vendor-specific domain controllers.

Streamline service management with a single tool

Benefit from the perfect tool for service decomposition, freestyle combining and orchestration, dynamic service chaining and service lifecycle management.

Gradually evolve towards virtualized networks (NFV)

Comarch’s model-driven resource management portfolio features integrated support for virtual and physical network functions, thus allowing step-by-step evolution towards NFV.

Easily reconfigure your network

Thanks to the Configuration Management functionality, you can easily configure all network elements, regardless of their vendor, technology or device type, in a model-driven way.
