A wide variety of factors — from the growing complexity of traditional
network management (arising from limited vendor interoperability and
proprietary protocols) to growing traffic volumes — have contributed
to increased OpEx and CapEx for Communications Service Providers
(CSPs) during a time of limited budgets and increased spending
cuts. At the same time on the IT infrastructure side, the growth in
data-centers, cloud-based infrastructure, and applications is driving
the need for virtualization and higher requirements for security
and scalability.

As CSPs look to virtualization and the implementation of new
architectural approaches to drive enhanced efficiency and mana-
gement of their network and data-center infrastructures, Software
Defined Networks (SDN) have become the key to unlocking
the promised technology and business benefits.

SDN, which is a new architectural approach to network configuration,
decouples the control plane from the data plane, virtualizes the
network and IT infrastructure, enables the dynamic scale of network
and IT resources, provides higher network and IT asset and service
utilization, and presents dynamically configurable QoS and SLA.
These benefits help CSPs lower CapEx and OpEx, while providing
greater flexibility and control of their rapidly converging infrastructure.

BSS/OSS has a critical role to play in this virtualization of the
infrastructure. CSPs can’t derive the stated SDN benefits without:

■■ Centralization of inventory data and management operations
across multi-technology and multi-vendor networks

■■ Seamless correlation of network and IT infrastructure configuration
and customer facing services for QoS tracking and service
orchestration (pre-integrated BSS/OSS)

■■ Technology-agnostic service fulfillment and assurance
■■ Open API’s and partner-friendly solutions for B2B markets

NetCracker’s BSS/OSS for SDN is a solution that is optimized
for SDN adoption and monetization. Pre-integrated with SDN, it
provides centralization of infrastructure management and seamless
data sharing for network management operations such as capacity
planning and forecasting. It enables a seamless order orchestration
for service fulfillment and IT service configuration. It facilitates fault,
problem, and incident correlation to service outages and customer
impact analysis, and unified business activity monitoring, analysis,
and reporting capabilities.
