Cloud and automation belong together
The cloud has opened up a world of new possibilities for communication service providers (CSPs) by empowering them to offer high-value hosting and managed IT services. This lifeline has arrived just in time to help CSPs escape what seemed to be their inevitable fate of becoming marginalized through increasingly commoditized services. However, in order to compete in the cut-throat telco industry, they require future-proof networks and architectures that enable them to respond to demand with the same elasticity as the cloud itself. They need to be free from the burden of time-consuming planning, installation and provisioning processes. There is only one way forward: Full process automation at the network edge, especially during service activation. And the key to this is standardized open interfaces.
Real-time service activation
Our FSP network management solutions expose standardized interfaces to any orchestrator for rapid service provisioning and modification.
Our solutions utilizes the most advanced cryptographic methods to safely authenticate devices deployed at the network edge and ensure the integrity of software and configuration data.
Zero touch provisioning at the edge
Fast, secure service activation requires automation combined with controls for trustworthy device authentication and protected communication.
Fast and secure
While new services promise new revenue, they currently come with a hefty service implementation price tag. All too often, field services need to install new technologies at the network edge that require extra expenditure. Weeks of valuable time negatively impact the business case and customer satisfaction. But with zero touch provisioning, all of this can be avoided. What’s more, with zero touch solutions that combine fully automated activation and advanced security controls, network security risk can be efficiently mitigated. With Ensemble Connector as an NFV infrastructure platform and the ADVA FSP 150 ProNID for high-bandwidth business services, we offer two solutions that utilizes the most advanced cryptographic methods to safely authenticate devices deployed at the network edge and ensure the integrity of software and configuration data.
Mining your data lake
With predictive maintenance, operational processes can be simplified, downtimes minimized and customer experience improved.
More revenue with less network
Together with reducing expensive on-site visits in the service deployment and activation phase, minimizing manual service analysis and intervention also helps avoid the human errors that are a key cost driver in networks. AI enables data-driven insights and learning from real-time network conditions. It can analyze huge amounts of data, extract patterns and perform tasks much faster, more precisely and with more efficient and optimized use of resources. What’s more, it provides the basis for new services, like predictive maintenance, giving CSPs an unprecedented opportunity for service innovation. That’s why we at ADVA are currently working with key customers, developing use cases for early adoption to seamlessly leverage the benefits of AI.
