Comarch Pitches OSS to Support SDN
KRAKOW, Poland -- Comarch, a provider of complete IT solutions for telecoms enriches its OSS Suite with support for the introduction of Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology. SDN aims to provide intelligent network traffic control and, as a result, efficient delivery of new, innovative services for customers. The main principle of SDN is centralizing the network control function, resulting in the ability to program the network according to application and service requirements, without a need for costly physical upgrades.
Comarch’s approach concentrates on supporting telecoms in fast and effective adoption of SDN, by employing BSS/OSS systems.
Comarch’s approach sees Network Inventory systems as a source of a complete view of the physical infrastructure for the SDN controller. The function of service catalog-driven NG Service Fulfillment is to play the role of an orchestrator and policy management which is to help in programming the network in accordance with business applications needs and to adjust the programming to operators' policies. NG Service Assurance’s role is to provide the SDN controller with information needed to reshape virtual networks so that they match the customer experience criteria.
