Cloud services are everywhere and the notion of “putting it in the cloud” has become an easy answer for sales people and service providers alike when asked how best to offer critical applications and data to customers and increase revenue. But there is nothing easy about the cloud. It’s not easy for operators, it’s not easy for IT, and it’s not easy for customers. The promise of cloud is supposed to be simplicity. No ownership concerns, no licensing issues, no maintenance headaches – cloud services are supposed to be as pleasant as the white puffy variety that we see floating by on a summer day.

OSS For LTE – What’s the Plan?

On the eve of Mobile World Congress, we’re preparing to hear tales of LTE deployment and mobile network convergence as we navigate the new venue and get lost among the endless rows of exhibits. Operators are nearly unanimous in their belief that LTE is an opportunity for a fresh start. 3G was a rapid response to unanticipated data demand but 4G and LTE – well that’s a different story. So surely operators cannot contemplate a fresh start without considering OSS. Once the design, deployment, testing, and acceptance of the network is completed – then what?

What does it mean to be a digital service provider?

There is still a wide-held belief among many people in this industry that today’s communications service providers (CSPs) will fail because they will be unable to provide value to the end user in this new digital economy. But in fact the opposite is true. CSPs are evolving precisely in order to grasp the opportunities that the digital economy and this digital life will provide.

Don't Punish Your Partners

Telecommunications is a live sector and changing rapidly so operators must remain responsive in order to keep up. In a hyper connected world where billions of devices are connected to each other and transmitting huge amounts of data, there is no alternative but to partner. Digital service providers (DSPs) need partners for infrastructure, partners for services, partners for sales, partners for delivery and partners for support.
