Comarch Next Generation Service Fulfillment (NGSF) is a solution designed to reduce time to market and automate the telecom service fulfillment process for customer service delivery on-top of a hybrid network. The solution employs the model-driven (catalog-driven) concept, which enables the orchestration of hybrid networks where virtual network functions and network services are modeled consistently, with physical network functions and “legacy” network services employing the TMF SID model. NGSF (using ETSI NFV ISG terminology) can implement end to end service and MANO orchestration, and manage the VNF instantiation process. The solution can implement this process ether as one solution or in a federation model orchestrating third-party domain orchestrators.
Telecom Service Fulfillment in Hybrid Networks (Traditional and Virtualized)
The solution assumes building services from pre-defined components managed in the service catalog, thus enabling CSPs to reduce time to market for new offers and maintain a high level of innovation in their product portfolio. In the NFV/SDN era, these pre-defined components can be introduced much more quickly than by using traditional hardware-based services. This unleashes the full potential of catalog-based modeling, which, prior to the NFV/SDN era, was hampered by the physical limitations of networks. Thanks to catalog-driven orchestration, NGSF enables the swift introduction of traditional and digital services, delivered in sophisticated value chains. The fulfillment process is realized on top of existing technological silos, which allows step by step transformation programs without the need for huge up-front investments.
