Open Source for Modernizing Telecoms OSS/BSS

The future of telecommunications operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) is automated. To meet this challenge, communications service providers (CSPs) are modernizing their OSS/BSS architecture and transforming into digital service providers (DSPs). ACG Research identifies the steps for implementation and recommends an agile, cloud native, microservices-based environment powered by managed open source software with advanced […]

5G NR – Interference Hunting in the Uplink of TDD Networks

The deployment of 5G NR brings new performance and applications but it also is the first global adoption of TDD networks where the downlink and the uplink use the same frequency; meaning that downlink signals can mask interference. Download this Application Card and discover: Why 5G networks entail new challenges How to identify and locate […]

Overcoming T&M, Assurance Challenges in 5G Networks

For all of the benefits that 5G promises, operators are faced with a stark reality: 5G networks introduce challenges not experienced with other iterations of cellular technology. Spectrum issues, network densification, network slicing and virtualization are just a few of the complications that 5G operators face as they plan and build networks. As a result, […]

IoT Commercialisation Playbook

IoT is all about how data can be used to re-commercialise products into services. This re-commercialisation enables IoT enterprises to deliver higher levels of customer engagement and experience, whilst making cost savings and realising new revenue generation opportunities, which are critical for the return on investment of the IoT project. There are a number of […]

Revenue Assurance in the 5G Era

Our world is becoming more digitally connected by the day. Service providers are looking beyond simple voice and data services.
