Many providers contemplate using manual processes to manage service delivery on their fiber network. While this may work during the initial phases of the deployment (when the number of installs per day and the number of deployed customers are fe), manual provisioning will put an increasing strain on operations over time. To help better understand the benefits of automation, consider that someone will need to manually update the telecom OSS and BSS every time that…
ETI’s Vision OSS automates all of these functions, or, at minimum, makes it much easier to address them since it has all the data and features necessary to control service delivery. Starting with auto-discovery, Vision OSS eliminates the need for a design-and-assign function because the network will tell us where the ONT is located. Once the address of the ONT is known, it handles all service activation and management simply by having users – either hands-on through the user interface or through its Northbound Interface – change the services assigned to a customer. All the technical issues related to ONT port activation, VLAN assignments, ONT firmware, IP addresses, etc. are managed under the covers by Vision OSS based on the Service Provider’s target configuration.
Broadband is now critical infrastructure necessary for the long-term viability of communities, regardless of their size or location. But it isn’t cheap. Indeed, it’s quite expensive to build and operate. And the smaller the community, in terms of population and people per square mile, the more difficult it is to build a sustainable business case, absent some support.more
According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group global PON equipment market revenue is forecast to reach $7.3 B by 2023, driven by spending on new 10 Gbps EPON and XGS-PON deployments, and on maximizing existing 2.5 Gbps GPON networks. The Broadband Bunch had the opportunity to interview Jeff Heynen about his findings. Listen here or read below.more
The era of smart cities is upon us and it promises to change our everyday way of life. Smart cities leverage emerging technologies and data, also called the internet of things (IoT), to optimize the delivery of services to constituents, creating an ecosystem that contributes to improving city services, education, healthcare, economic empowerment, public safety, and an overall improved quality of life.more
