Cloud-Based Network Management Solution

 

Reduce the footprint on the network node thereby reducing costs and improving overall operational efficiency with TCS' Cloud-based Network Management Solution.

Our Solution | Benefits | The TCS Advantage | Download Brochure

With the volume of data traffic carried by wireless networks increasing rapidly, radio base stations such as LTE eNodeB perform extensive Operations, Administration and Management (OA&M) processing. This includes fault and event processing and computation of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and other performance metrics, besides running distributed SON algorithms on the physical node.

This contributes to an increase in the overall load on the OA&M agents, thus leading to higher power consumption of the node.

All of these make traditional OA&M management cumbersome and time consuming. Additionally, service providers require a near-real time performance management solution in order to better manage the network and enhance customer experience.

Our Solution

TCS Cloud-based Network Management Solution is a secure and highly available platform. It consolidates the workload onto virtual clusters to improve network function utilization with automated load monitoring and management. This helps in auto scaling of the network functions onto the cloud on a real-time basis.

Our solution promotes operations consolidation and accommodates unpredictable demand patterns through its software centric approach, offering the flexibility to define and deploy distributed SON algorithms. The solution reduces use of computation power and increases operational efficiency by offloading some of the critical processes on to the cloud.

The open architecture of the solution enhances maintainability and supports building multi-vendor and technology management solutions for equipment vendors. The solution’s optimized use of hardware components enables you to add or delete Virtual Machines (VMs) depending on the network load. Additionally, it facilitates definition and implementation of custom SON policies to control network load and roll out new services to customers.

Benefits

TCS Cloud-Based Network Management Solution provides the following benefits:

  • Reduce Capital and Operating Expenditures: Manage your network more effectively and increase overall operational efficiency of the system, both in terms of maintainability and ease of management.
  • Improve Network Operations: Quickly design network management, optimization, and radio planning solutions for LTE and HetNet based networks.
  • Increase Revenues: Gain the ability to implement analytics solutions with shorter time to market, and generate new service revenue streams.
  • Enhance Customer Experience: Transform operations with quick design and deployment of solutions for customer experience management and Quality of Experience (QoE), thus monetizing LTE rollouts with dynamic new services.

The TCS Advantage

With extensive knowledge in the telecom domain and expertise in technology, TCS helps you make the most of our cloud-based solution for OA&M and SON. We help you gain a competitive advantage by offering:

  • Centralized OA&M: Our solution aids centralized management, improved efficiency, and lower power consumption of radio stations. Operator defined distributed SON algorithms provide the ability to run a unified network while leaving an extremely small OA&M agent footprint.
  • Dynamic Cloud based Architecture: A scalable design of VMs is created based on network OA&M load for enhanced performance, leading to better management of existing networks
  • Adherence to Industry Standards: Common information model for OA&M processing offers dynamic support for multiple vendor nodes that leads to standardization. Our solution complies with 3GPP specification for OA&M, as well as standardized Northbound Interface based on ITF-N standards, making the solution vendor agnostic.This also enables multi-vendor OSS integration which is a step towards OSS standardization
