Thanks Guys, Great Session!!!

Devops : One has look for the mentor with good business undestanding and technical experience working with E2E SDLC project. 

Steel

Most of CSP's don't have clear strategy and financial support. Hence they are in dilemma to priorize network transformation or digital transformation ?

We have seen CSP's improvve their operational cost to reinvest in some of the iniaitives (i.e. self funding programmes).

Thanks for a great session.

When it come to Network and OSS space. Telco's todaty have  

  • Multiple and siloed OSS stacks
  • Inability to identify business and customer impacts in case of events
  • Lack of 360 degree view of the network
  • More reactive approach to problems than proactive and preventive ones
  • Inability to optimize the network to support future demand

Opensource platform can play an impact play to bridge the gap by provide an overlay approach on existing stack 

  • Correlational view of network, services (VAS, OTT, SaaS etc.), operations, customer and billing in the event of network incidents
  • Predictive analytics based on machine learning algorithms to improve proactive resolution and SLA adherence.
  • Accurate identification of main fault location with specifically designed algorithms
  • Decision support system to automate the next based actions
  • Network orchestration system to seamlessly integrate with SDN and provide self-remediation/healing networks

Here's another good one for Ravi:

APIs have been so important in the IT space. I wonder, since his company works with both IT and CSPs, how the two compare in terms of adoption and implemenation?
