MYCOM OSI has recently announced the launch of its 5G Roll-out Accelerator solution. As CSPs race to launch 5G, the on-demand service enables them to easily acquire the comprehensive assurance capabilities required to rapidly roll-out 5G network and services.
MYCOM OSI has deployed 5G assurance to Tier 1 CSPs including Vodafone and Telenor Norway. Its new 5G Roll-out Accelerator solution addresses the specific competing challenges CSPs face today in 5G roll-outs: competitive pressure to rapidly launch and operate 5G networks and services while still delivering on the promise of faster connectivity and protecting quality of service for existing customers.
MYCOM OSI’s 5G Roll-out Accelerator solution is a cloud native service assurance SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offering for CSPs launching 5G services. Deployable and scalable on-demand, ready to ingest data within one hour and pre-integrated with most 5G radio equipment, it provides the end-to-end network and service assurance capability required to support the key assurance use cases for 5G network and service roll-out and operation.
This includes the planning, configuration, acceptance and the monitoring and analysis of 5G network and service performance, covering the access, transport and core network domains and including the management of resources that concurrently support 5G and pre-5G workloads.
The solution provides five MYCOM OSI SmartPacks that are pre-configured use cases designed to support specific business activities and outcomes. They include:
MYCOM OSI 5G Site Validator – validating that 5G sites are configured as planned, to improve the reliability and speed of site acceptance, including several acceptance KPIs (including SgNB, Intra-gNB handover, eNDC success rates) to establish required performance compliance
MYCOM OSI 5G Site Auditor – continually certifying that 5G RAN configurations are within expected parameter metrics to maintain optimal performance and reliability, and providing insight into configuration discrepancies and intra/inter technology classifications including hysteresis, RSRQ, RSRP, 5QI and HO time-to-trigger, and scenarios such as new site, general audit and site rehoming
MYCOM OSI 5G Performance Monitor – monitoring the ongoing KPI performance of the 5G network to expedite the identification and resolution of network performance issues through proactive detection and traffic profiling algorithms
MYCOM OSI 5G Dashboard Pack – easy to use but powerful dashboards for at-a-glance visualization of the 5G network, including intuitive Root Cause Analysis capabilities
MYCOM OSI Cross-Domain Continuity Manager– simultaneously managing 5G and pre-5G customer experiences with pre-configured KPIs and alarms for sessions involving handover to pre-5G and resources supporting both 5G and pre-5G services
“As 5G deployments gather pace, many CSPs are in a race to be the first to launch basic services in their market, but often their assurance systems are not 5G-ready and they can’t afford the complexity to implement new ones,” said Jithu Raghavendran, VP Telco Digital Transformation Solutions, MYCOM OSI.
