Benefit quickly from NFV/SDN technology
combined with a legacy network to deliver new customer services. New network functions can be easily on-boarded into the service catalog, and new services for customers can be created using the service and resource catalog to avoid coding and scripting. Pre-integration with BSS Product Catalog enables CSPs to offer new products, and embrace the “fail fast” and “beta service” concepts of the OTT world.
Virtual network functions (VNF) and network services (NS) can be on-boarded into service catalog in automated manner based on provided VNF and NS Descriptors expressed in ether YANG or TOSCA notations. During the on-boarding process a user may extend the meta-data describing VNFs and augmenting the configurator provided by the vendor of the VNF/NS. Once on-boarded VNFs and NS can be used to model customer services via Service Catalog module GUI without the need to do any scripting in YANG or TOSCA.
Let your employees easily assemble new services, thanks to reusing pre-defined service components - the system is based on the TMF SID:CFS-RFS-R model adapted to Virtualised environment. This means that virtualized network functions (VNF) and virtualized network services (NS) can be easily on-boarded into service catalog becoming the service components from which customer services can be assembled. , So system operators can easily define new services directly in the service catalog without having to understand the technical aspects of the SOA, microservices technology nor without the ability to do scripting in YANG, TOSCA or other more IT-skills requiring scripting language. Speed-up service creation by introducing better reusability of service components. Easily incorporate partners’ services into your portfolio to pave the way to becoming service aggregators.
Quickly launch and deliver next-generation convergent offers (including digital and content-augmented services) regardless of the underlying technology, thanks to the ability to build services from pre-defined components managed in the service catalog. Shorten product lifecycles thanks to the service fulfillment process based on a central product & service catalog.
Improve the relation between service offers and network capabilities by centering the service fulfillment process around integrated product & service catalogs. Achieve true customer centricity – inspiring a shift of the core competence from network operations to customer service innovation.
Lower TCO as a result of automating the service fulfillment process. Decrease the costs of service launch, delivery and provisioning thanks to service fulfillment automation. Quickly and easily integrate third-party service components, existing legacy systems and service infrastructure by using Comarch Service Inventory as an integration hub. Consolidate many vertical OSS systems to a horizontal platform in a step by step manner.
