Everything on the Netcracker platform is cloud native and powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence
Last week, Netcracker announced Filipino mobile operators Globe has chosen Telecom Company’s Managed Services offer Achieve a high level of operational skills. Globe Telecom will use the platform for things like order fulfillment, active monitoring and performance management. Susan White, Netcracker’s Head of SDN / NFV Marketing, speaks RCR Wireless News About the role that this new digital platform will play in the evolving telecom ecosystem.
White explained that Netcracker has integrated the components of its OSS and BSS portfolio with two main objectives in mind: to help service providers make their networks much faster and more automated; And help them digitally transform their services and how they offer these services to customers. New business models are emerging, and subscription services are growing, and these services are moving to the edge of the network.
Everything on the Netcracker platform is cloud native and powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence. It supports Open API and has “tight” security according to White.
Automation is going to be essential, he said, adding that operators need to be more automated so that they can quickly push new services and bear the cost of running the network. And when it comes to digital transformation services, Netcracker hopes to help the telco market grow in new, diverse fields.
“For that, we want to help stimulate innovation,” White continued. “Enabling them to create new apps on their platform and create their own applications and not just rely on vendors to do it themselves.”
The final, but widely criticized, part, according to White, is the partnership, which Netcracker aims to help. “In the future, more partnerships will be needed to address new markets, not just at the technical level, but at the service level as well,” he said.
These partnerships are of particular importance when considering specific 5G applications, such as private networks, which White claims will happen “with or without telco.”
“The key is how they can get a share of that market and differentiate themselves. Lack of agility and skill is stopping them there. We see telcos working more closely with partners in certain areas, “he explained.
By listing things like 5G, network slicing and cloud capability, and RAN disassembly, White argued, “service providers are making a lot of different investments.” “All of these aspects are coming, and they will unlock innovation and opportunities, but it is expensive and complex,” he said, adding that Netcracker hopes its digital platform will be a valuable tool for service providers as they work through this promising, yet challenging. Opportunity.
