Cable-Related Catalyst Project Demonstration in Forumville

Frameworx for New Cable Services
Rapidly Design and Fulfill New Services

Catalyst participants will demonstrate how a “TV Everywhere” service can be rapidly designed and fulfilled on top of the subscriber’s existing digital services. The project proves that Frameworx Certified, pre-integrated and productized BSS/OSS solution stack can improve the design and delivery of new services. In addition, the project shows how to help multiple-play services providers de-risk their OSS/BSS transformation by sharing the investment with and leveraging the experience of mobile and wireline telecom operators, cable operators or cloud services providers. The demonstration system integrates Oracle’s Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery, the first solutions that have received TM Forum’s Frameworx Conformance Solution Certification, with Incognito’s service elements supporting IPTV and CableLabs standards.

Frameworx for New Cable Services
Video Quality and Partner Service Level Agreements

Building on previous Catalyst work, this Catalyst will show how service levels around video quality can be managed and monetized across value chain, from creators and aggregators to cable operators (MSOs). We will address the complexities of monitoring "TV Everywhere" video quality delivered by an MSO to its customers over its own network and managing the quality as delivered over other networks. This hybrid solution will provide Revenue Assurance dashboards to identify when to look at detailed video quality metrics gathered from the network to identify possible SLA violations. By analyzing Revenue Assurance aspects in addition to Video Quality as provided by an MSO's infrastructure, we can better manage the overall delivery of "TV Everywhere".
