It’s an exciting time to be a communications service provider. The business models enabled by network functions virtualization, software-defined networking and 5G offer great opportunities to grow revenue. But operators have to be able to operationalize these new technologies to monetize them.
This report, which is drawn from a Jan. 19 webinar sponsored by Sigma Systems, looks at how the enterprise catalog can help operators make the transition, leveraging their business and operational support systems (BSS/OSS). The Sigma team explains how to embrace digital innovation and enable rapid launch and fulfilment of new products and services through the digitalization of the BSS/OSS. Using real world examples, they show how to:
- modernize products;
- sell and personalize according to customer expectations and requirements across channels;
- execute the delivery of services agnostic of network technologies;
- ring-fence and exploit key legacy capabilities and assets; and
- guide the organization into DevOps automation around these capabilities.
