Mycom OSI has announced a collaboration with Red Hat for a telco cloud assurance solution that offers automated assurance across hybrid NFV networks.
A highly scalable, reliable and agile telco cloud – in which telecom NFV and SDN architectures use IT cloud technology – is critical in enabling CSPs to become digital service providers (DSPs) and profit from increased customer experience, agility and cost reductions as well as taking advantage of the latest digital services, IoT and 5G opportunities.
As telco cloud initiatives mature, assuring network and service quality across both physical and virtual (hybrid) network domains at the same time as introducing these new technologies can present a challenge for CSPs.
Mycom OSI says it will address this challenge by deploying its cloud-native Experience Assurance and Analytics (EAA) solution – which provides integrated, real time and automated assurance for end-to-end hybrid telco cloud networks – on Red Hat’s OpenStack Platform and OpenShift Container Platform. The result: it not only dynamically discovers, monitors and correlates vertical layers in NFV/SDN telco cloud architectures – from hardware resources to cloud platforms to NFVI, VNFs and service chains – but also provides assurance-driven closed loop network automation. This directs orchestrators (in virtual networks) and configuration management (in physical networks) to make changes to optimize end-to-end network and service quality.
“Telco clouds are a key enabler to unlocking on-demand, real time consumer and enterprise digital services such as SD-WAN and IoT opportunities for CSPs, and our recent innovations in telco cloud assurance have resulted in rapid growth in customer projects,” said Mounir Ladki, president and CTO at Mycom OSI. “Red Hat not only helps us to deliver agility, speed and cost benefits to our customers, but also a rich stream of essential telco cloud data that feeds our analytics engine. We are delighted to have such a strong collaboration with Red Hat.”
Based on internal testing, when deployed on private and public clouds, Mycom OSI says its EAA solution based on Red Hat technology can help reduce the time of system deployment and operations by over 75% versus traditional assurance systems.
