Network Software Provider Mavenir has today announced its next-generation Operations Support System (ngOSS), a new addition to the MAVscale platform.
The new solution brings together a powerful combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Analytics, Automation, and Orchestration, backed by Mavenir’s experience delivering telecom network solutions to allow Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to deploy ngOSS in their 4G networks today, while at the same time preparing to fully realise the potential of 5G capabilities through intelligent network operations.
Kuntal Chowdhury, SVP and GM of AI and Analytics at Mavenir, said: “As CSPs advance toward automation, next-generation OSS will be a critical component to enable the network of the future. Using advanced AI and ML models to enhance network performance will help CSPs deliver superior customer experience, while scalable automation reduces manual tasks to lower maintenance costs and reduces the risk of human error. Mavenir’s ngOSS solution allows CSPs to break open the network and take advantage of Open APIs to increase agility and innovation, introduce new services, and monetize 5G with rapid service velocity.”
Improving customer experience with ngOSS
By enhancing network performance, Mavenir’s ngOSS enables CSPs to improve the overall customer experience, lower operating expenses (OPEX), and reduce the risk of manual errors more prevalent in legacy OSS systems.
The end-to-end, cloud-native automation framework is built based on TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA) and OpenAPIs that use enhanced AI and Machine Learning (ML) models to deliver advanced network performance. Engineered with a microservices-based architecture, Mavenir's ngOSS solution simplifies large, legacy, monolithic systems into smaller, autonomous components that offer intelligence, insights, and network control. A more open, automated network is necessary to break legacy vendor lock-in while driving innovation for 5G use cases.
Mavenir is an OSS vendor with 4G/5G and mobile core/Radio Access Network (RAN) expertise, and an in-depth understanding of orchestrating telecommunications workloads required for enabling advanced 5G capabilities, including network slicing, which translates directly into efficiencies for the CSPs.
