Mycom OSI has launched its next-gen, cloud native platform as part of its enhanced Experience Assurance and Analytics (EAA) suite of applications.
The offering will enable achieve
simplified and automated network operations, while being made
available on a subscription model that improves agility for
CSPs and accelerates new service launches.
Speaking on the new offering, Mounir Ladki, president and
CTO of Mycom OSI, said: "The new subscription model provides
commercial flexibility and helps CSPs overcome time to market
and cost challenges of provisioning and managing the
infrastructure required to operate assurance systems."
Mycom’s native cloud solution leverages NFV and
SDN architectures that use state-of-the-art IT cloud technology
enabling CSPs to become digital service providers (DSPs). In
addition to this CSPs create profit from increased customer
experience, cost reductions while exploring the latest digital
services, IoT and 5G opportunities.
Mycom’s EAA suite supports this offering by
optimising the network and service quality of networks
integrating real time assurance data and management functions
with automation and analytics based on AI/Machine Learning.
"Our customers, who are some of the largest and most
innovative CSPs, are all at different points on their digital
transformation journeys but all have strategies to win the
latest digital services, IoT and 5G market opportunities, and
are implementing the latest technologies. Similarly, all are
constrained by cost and complexity, added Ladki.
Mycom’s OSI say that not only does its new
cloud-native platform underpin all of the EAA applications but
it gives cloud benefits such as infrastructure independence,
agile deployment, elastic scaling and high availability, as
well as common services for EAA applications such as a unified
network inventory and dynamic topology, integration with big
data frameworks and open APIs. Additionally
Mycom’s solution uses a micro-services
architecture, containers, cloud technology and DevOps
methodology to enable agile deployment on private and public
clouds, and reduces system deployment and operations by over
75% versus traditional assurance systems.
"We built our cloud native platform from the ground up to
address all steps in their journey and have a seven step
transformation methodology to telco cloud. This helped secure a
significant customer project in the Middle East in which we
demonstrated ROI and investment protection at each step towards
the customer’s telco cloud objective," continued
Overall Mycom says its EAA suite helps CSPs prepare for 5G
and IoT growth with scalability, elasticity and high
reliability, as well as network slicing capabilities, to meet
the growing demands for virtualized enterprise services,
SD-WAN, HD video and IoT.
Only last month Mycom partnered with Red
Hat to develop its telco cloud assurance solution. Working
together the two will leverage their respective technologies to
create a new solution. MyCom’s Experience
Assurance and Analytics (EAA) solution offers integrated,
real-time and automated assurance for end-to-end hybrid telco
