Empowering the Digital Telco Transformation with Convergent Charging and Policy

In 2014, the mobile industry passed an amazing milestone – the number of mobile subscriptions (SIM cards) surpassed the human population.1 While these connected devices represent a smaller subset of the global consumer base, mobile has had a significant positive impact on literally every aspect of our lives, the supply-chain of trillion-dollar industries and national […]

Telecoms.com Intelligence IoT Outlook Report 2015

Telecoms.com Intelligence recently ran a comprehensive survey to gain a more thorough understanding of the IoT opportunity for operators as it exists today. Just short of 1,000 respondents participated in our questionnaire, covering four comprehensive areas of concern: information security; cellular networking challenges; cloud and big data; and industrial IoT.

NFV: THE MYTH OF APPLICATION-LEVEL HIGH AVAILABILITY

When designing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solutions, some software providers approach the problem of high availability through application-level redundancy schemes (load balancing, check pointing, journaling, etc.). But application-level high availability by itself doesn’t achieve the goal of five-nines (99.999%) reliability—the standard set by service providers using traditional network infrastructure based on physical equipment

Grey is the new green: Cashing in on the A2P opportunity

Operators the world over should still see significant monetary value in SMS. Recent research indicates that the growth of Application to Person messaging is entering a golden age, a four year window where feature phones still outnumber smartphones globally. A2P messaging has the potential to replenish a revenue stream which many had considered dead for some time.

Adopt a holistic approach to network service orchestration

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technology is re-shaping how network operators instantiate, elastically scale and terminate network services in virtualized network environments. However, even with this increasingly dynamic network, how do you fully realize material business benefits, not just network benefits?

Building the Carrier Grade NFV Infrastructure

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is the telco’s version of IT virtualization, achieved by augmenting the latter with the carrier grade capabilities required for high availability, security, and performance, as well as for more efficient network management. But while it’s important for services to be reliable in the IT world, the stakes are higher in telecommunications […]
